Clue #1

Where RP would like to sneak in.
Where kids like to go for a spin.

You might find it hokey.

Clue #2

A basketball move flying high.
Growing some food? He’s your guy.
Don’t walk in the park
So late after dark.
And don’t heat the plums that you buy.

Your Lowell Bucks prize will be mailed to you and your selfie will be published on the Lowell’s First Look web page. The medallion is yours to keep as a memory of riddling expertise.

Always Remember: Hidden medallions are accessible 24 hours a day. They will always be hidden in the City of Lowell and nearby township locations linked to the city by sidewalk or trail. They will never be on private property. They will never be in the cemetery. They will never be buried in the ground. You may have to move grass or leaves or remove a covering of colored tape to see the medallion. The hidden medallions will always be reachable by an adult. Medallions could be hanging on a string or rubber band or attached by a magnet.
