Holiday Events

December 2020

Every year the Chamber hosts a Medallion Hunt that is sponsored by Crow River Sno Pro’s Inc. The prize money is $500 in Glencoe Bucks. Glencoe Bucks are like cash that can be spent at Chamber members. Every Friday at 4:00 pm a clue will be posted on our Facebook page and website, until the medallion is found.   Click here to see a picture of the medallion. GOOD LUCK and let the fun begin!

FIRST CLUE – The smell of pine needles, spruce and the smell of a Christmas tree – those to me are the scents of the holidays.
SECOND CLUE – 
Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.
THIRD CLUE – When you’re alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go downtown.

  1. The Chamber board and employees do not know where the medallion is hidden.
  2. It can be inside or outside.
  3. It may not be available 24/7.
  4. It can be buried, but not underground.
  5. If you do not like the rules, don’t play.
  6. Have fun!
