Fourth Annual contest starts Monday

Exciting prizes and fun for all highlight The Chronicle Times' Fourth Annual Great Easter Egg Hunt that begins on Monday, April 11 and runs until April 22 - or until the eggs are found.

A Gold egg and Silver egg will be hidden within the Cherokee City limits (excluding private property). Clues in this year's contest will be harder than ever, and we mean ever, with new clues that will be featured in The Chronicle Times and participating retailers to help you down the bunny trail and, hopefully, to one of the eggs.

There will be a clue printed in the Chronicle Times every day for the Golden Egg, along with bonus clues on Tuesday, April 12 and April 19 at Carey's Furniture. Clues for the Silver Egg, will be broken into three parts, with the first part of the Silver Egg clue printed in the Chronicle Times and the second and third parts of that same clue will be at area business that will be announced in that same issue of the Chronicle Times.

Any found eggs must be returned to The Chronicle Times office to claim the prize. If the eggs haven't been found by the end of the Great Easter Egg Hunt, the Chronicle Times will publish all clues, including the last one.

The clues will be published up to and including the final day until the hidden Gold and Silver eggs are found.

Among the great prizes is the Gold Egg winner - $1000 in furniture from Carey's Furniture in downtown Cherokee. The Silver Egg winner receives approximately $340 in gift certificates from participating Cherokee businesses, including a one-year subscription to the Chronicle Times.

The Great Easter Egg Hunt is open to anyone except employees of The Chronicle Times and Carey's Furniture and their immediate families. No purchase is necessary. Decision of the judges is final.
