Cousins find Torchlight medallion

Wade Young

All it took was one clue and 15 minutes of searching for a group of cousins to find this year’s Christmas medallion.

Max and Mikayla Segna, and Ruby and Jaxson Vosejpka found this year’s Torchlight Parade and Fireworks medallion in Memorial Park shortly after the first clue hit newsstands on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

The large silver coin was buried on the west side of the park near a sign by the railroad tracks. It was hidden in a plastic container under fresh mulch in the mud Ruby said.

Ruby and Jaxson’s mom, Joy, was with the kids when they found it. She said other hunters had already searched the same location, but didn’t dig deep enough to find the buried container.

“People had already looked. They (kids) had to dig pretty deep. There was dirt over the top of the container and fresh mulch,” she said.

Ruby added, “When I saw that, I knew.”

Joy continued, with a laugh, “You knew because we found it in a dirty sock last year!”

Max and Mikayla are the children of Ashley and Bob Segna. Ruby and Jaxson are the children of Andy and Joy Vosejpka. The kids were accompanied in the hunt by their grandmother, Eileen Segna, Ashley, and Joy.

The Segna family is no stranger to finding the medallion. The relentless hunters have found the medallion several times before.

The kids will receive specially-made medallions, $50 in Monty Bucks and a $50 gift card to Mackenthun’s Fine Foods.
