Pickle treasure

hunt clue

A jar of Mt. Olive pickles has been hidden in Mount Olive. The N.C. Pickle Festival treasure hunt is under way. For the next two weeks, clues will be printed in the News-Argus that will lead someone to the location of the pickles.

The pickles will be labeled, "You are a winner in the NC Pickle Festival Treasure Hunt."

The finder can bring the winning jar to the Mt. Olive Area Chamber of Commerce and receive a pickle pack donated by the Mt. Olive Pickle Company.

Here are the first clues:

*Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the pickle princess of them all?

*If you can't find anything in your treasure chest, you might find one at the Harley Motorcycle and Wayne County Cruisers car show at this year's festival.

*The entertainment at the festival will belt out some tunes that will uplift and support you.


The Wayne County Chapter of the American Red Cross will hold a Bloodmobile Wednesday from 10:30 .m. to 3 p.m. at Cherry Hospital. Donors will receive a coupon for a free car wash.
