Welcome to Verona Hometown Days 2015!

The Hometown Days Medallion Hunt Clues!

The Festival Medallion Quest
Last year proved to be a success
So here’s your first clue
In quest number two
To find where the medallion rests

Clue 1:

To solve the medallion mystery
You’ll need to know Verona history
Consider this rhyme
A second time
And ponder on how things used to be.

Clue 2:

Search in both city and town
Look sideways, look up and look down
Take a second or two
Find a theme in the clues
Then look a few feet off the ground.

Clue 3:

At first you might succeed
Then find you have a greater need
And a healthier smile
Was controversial for a while
And a local doctor agreed!

Clue 4:

If you stood at the spot and looked west,
You would see where eagles nest,
Not the first or the third
But the second old bird
Can you pass this history test?

Clue 5:

Mix it with salt you have brine
Mix it with grapes to make wine
The second quenches thirsts
From the same spot as the first
The medallion mixes better with pine.

Congratulations to Sara, Nolan and Miles McNallie for being the first to find the location of the Hometown Days Medallion!
