Mecki here

Jefferson's Gemuetlichkeit Days German heritage festival is days away and the Mecki contest has begun. Mecki is the German Hedgehog character that for decades has been the unofficial mascot of the fest, which takes place Sept. 13-15. Clues are posted in the Watertown Daily Times, the Gemuetlichkeit Days website at and Jefferson Public Library. When Mecki is found the finder should take the Mecki to the Jefferson Public Library. The Library will contact the Gemuetlichkeit Days contest chairman. A $100 prize will be awarded to the lucky winner. Clue No. 1 reads: "Guten Tag, Mecki Here! I'm going to Gemuetlichkeit Days, its 49th year! I've looked all around town for a good place to hide, All to help celebrate our German Pride. Dressed up in a coat of white, I look just right. I'm watching the sky for Eagles in flight. Ich Liebe Gemuetlichkeit!"
