Winterfest Medallion found in near blizzard conditionsPublished by on
WORTHINGTON – The Winterfest Medallion has been found! CJ Nelson and his fiance Kelly Nickel found the medallion next to the sculpture at Sailboard Beach on Thursday afternoon around 5 p.m.
According to Kelly, the medallion was tucked along the leg of the sculpture, sticking out of the snow barely a quarter of an inch. Much more snow, she said, and it would have been buried.
Kelly is a special education paraprofessional at the middle school, while CJ works for the YMCA. She said it’s been hard to search for medallions in the past because of the school day, but this time the two just decided to go check it out.
The couple plans to marry May 17, so Kelly wants to use her $100 in Chamber Checks to buy a new dress for a shower this weekend, but she’s still trying to get CJ to agree with that. He wants to use the money to enter the Winterfest Chili Cookoff. We’ll have to wait until tonight to see who won that argument!
For those who are curious, here’s the fifth clue:
Once a year on the shores of Lake Okabena, there’s entertainment you’d find in a big city arena.
Surfers on the water and music in the air, go to this place and you will find me there!
