Leprechaun Days approaching fast
This year's Leprechaun's Lost Medallion Hunt will return to its traditional start time on Monday of Rosemount Leprechaun Days, which runs from July 20-29.
The medallion hunt will start at 9 a.m. Monday, July 23, when the first clue is released on the front door of Sterling State Bank, 4520 150th St. W., corner of County Road 42 and Diamond Path, and online.
Sterling State Bank is offering a $500 cash prize to the winner.
The hunt has enough clues, in limerick format (a nod to the city's Irish heritage), to have it run until the festival ends July 29.
Official rules and a picture of the prize will be posted on the front door of the bank.
Clues will be published every morning at 9 a.m.
