DELANO, MN – It took some uncovering, but the granite chip has been found.
Jacob Olson and Jerry Wunderlich found the chip in Krienke’s Woodland Road Park, and turned it in to Delano City Hall at 4:58 p.m. Wednesday.
For finding the chip, the duo won $100 cash from the Delano Fourth of July Committee.
The chip was wrapped in a brown paper bag and hidden in the wood chips near the park’s playground.
Here is an explanation of the clues:
