Hunters, look no further - the Custer County Chief Easter egg has been found! Sisters Rachel Simmons, age 4 (left) and Elissa Simmons, age 6, followed the clues in the April 21 Custer County Chief which led them to the hidden egg, located at the Custer County Courthouse.
The girls are the daughters of Russ and Michelle Simmons. The family relocated to Broken Bow about a year ago, and therefore were not familiar with the history of the area which was referred to in some of the clues.
"My husband went on the Internet and did some research to see what buildings were built here that year," Michelle explained.
His research paid off. The prized Easter basket contained two tickets to the showing of HOP at the Tiffany Theater, plus two popcorns; a 1-year subscription to the Custer County Chief; candy-filled eggs, and a lovely potted plant.
Congratulations to the Simmons family, and thanks for reading the Chief!
