From Memorial Day through Labor Day each year, the City of Monticello does a program called ‘Finders Keepers’ where they hide locally made Cedar Mesa Pottery along the cart paths at the Hideout Golf Club and whoever finds the pottery gets to keep it! My husband and I started looking in the summer of 2012 when I was pregnant with our son, and we’ve been looking every year since. About a month ago, after 3 years of looking, we FINALLY found one!
I was getting to the point where I was pretty sure that there wasn’t pottery hidden out there at all! And actually, just about 15 seconds before we found it my husband said, ‘So, do we know for sure that there’s really pottery hidden out here?’ and I responded, ‘They say there is, but I’m seriously beginning to doubt it.’ And then boom, there it was!
Of course, we didn’t look on a daily basis or anything like that. I’d say we probably walked on the golf course once every other week or so throughout the summer. And actually most of the time my son was more into watching deer, chasing bunnies, and looking for golf balls, but still- you’d have thought we would have found something before now!
Finders Keepers runs until Labor Day, so there are still a few weeks to get out there and look for a treasure of your own to take home!
