What could you do with $500? How about if you just had to find an item hidden in McPherson County – and it was in plain sight?
Back again this year, is the All Schools Day Button Hunt. The Button Hunt committee, led by Megan Anderson of Kansas Secured Title, is going out of its way to ensure all potential button-hunters know the button is hidden on public land, and it will be hidden in plain sight, meaning that no digging or destruction of any kind is needed to find it. It is important to remember that since All Schools Day is a county-wide event, the entirety of McPherson County is fair game in the search.
This year, several businesses are sponsoring the hunt including, MCDS, Fee Insurance, Superior Automotive, Hutton Construction and Gentiva Hospice.
In order to claim the prize, the individual who turns the button in will be required to have purchased a hunting license available for $5. You must have an All Schools Day button, which costs $2, in order to purchase a license.
The licenses are available at the Chamber of Commerce, the office of the McPherson Sentinel, KNGL/KBBE, and at Sunflower Bank. If no one has found the button by the time that the All Schools Day events are over, a name will be randomly drawn from those who purchased licenses and half the prize money will be awarded to that individual.
The clues will appear daily on the website, www.allschoolsday.com and will air on Mid-Kansas Radio, 96.7 FM, KBBE from May 2nd until May 9th, or until the button is found. Clues will also be in the McPherson Sentinel on days the paper is printed.
