Woodbury Days Medallion Hunt Clue 5:

Ojibway's a hive of activity this week

But it's not your place to seek

Amid orange you ought look port

Near signs of hobby or sport

The three-day Woodbury Days festival runs Aug. 25-28, but the annual medallion hunt already is underway.

The medallion hunt is co-sponsored by the Woodbury Bulletin and Anchor Bank of Woodbury.

Clues leading searches to the medallion will be released daily through Woodbury Days, or until the medallion is found. (Clues will not be posted on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19- 20.)

Visit Anchor Bank, 1920 Donegal Drive in Woodbury, to read the clue by 9 a.m. each day.

Call the Woodbury Bulletin's hotline for the medallion hunt at 651-319-4488, where hunters may listen to a voice recording of the most current clue after 11 a.m. daily. Clues will also be posted on woodburybulletin.com at 11 a.m. each release day.

The prize is $500, courtesy of Anchor Bank of Woodbury. The winner is guaranteed the first half of the prize. The second half of the prize is secured when the medallion is returned by a Woodbury Days button holder and the winner calls 651-702-0973 to alert the Woodbury Bulletin. (If the medallion is found outside regular business hours, call 651-248-7197 or email news@rivertowns.net.)

Anchor Bank will present the prize. Any winner who doesn't have the Button of Savings will receive only $250 of the prize, courtesy of Anchor Bank.

Return the medallion to the bank, during weekday business hours 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays to claim the prize.

It's a great celebration of our city, we do concur

So why not get a headstart on the games and fun

And start looking for the medallion with this clue No. 1

Clue 2

It's Day 2 of the contest and Woodbury Days is drawing near

With hiding spots aplenty, where, oh where, should one steer

As you plan your search, an important rule is this

Stray from city property and the prize you will miss

Head east of the interstate to find the loot

With each day more people join the search

Maybe you'll find the prize nestled beneath a perch
