Below, the annual medallion hunt during the Taylors Falls Lighting Festival was won by Gabriella Anderson, 11 years old, of Taylors Falls. She is flanked by her mom (white hat) and a friend.
Typically there are six clues, but Gabriella actually found it during the first clue. She was out wandering around the Swedish Immigrant Trail (which was the theme this year), and stumbled upon, what she thought was a piece of trash and picked it up. The medallion was hidden in a Band-Aid box! This was before the second clue was even posted. This is the youngest medallion finder yet.
