Clue #1

“Welcome to the Big Cheesy” we say with a smile,

Grab some fresh dairy, and let’s chat for a while.

The Official Cheese Curd Capital of our fair state,

Will again throw a great party, so please don’t be late.

We will kick off the fun with a hunt of some sort,

Beads are optional, we are happy to report.

A Benjamin or two will be placed in your hand,

If you find the medallion on non-private land.
