Clementine, the Times-Record's elf friend and a close friend of Santa’s, has moved to her fifth location on her 2018 Christmas mission and invites our readers on a mission of their own to come find her.
This will be Clementine's fifth location out of eight total that she will be visiting on her mission from Santa. At each stop she writes the Times-Record a note to tell us where she will be and she hopes to see many happy faces at each location.
The mischievous elf's fourth visit was to Bong’s Bootery. Clementine loved looking at all the shoes Damon, Brenda and staff have on display. In fact, she plans to take new elf shoe design ideas back with her to the North Pole.
Clementine has asked the Times-Record to pass along a special message that she has met so many nice people during my stay in Valley City but she only has three stops left before she has to report back to the North Pole, so be sure to keep looking and guessing where Clementine will show up next.
Both Clementine and the Times-Record thank those who have guessed so far and encourage others to come find the elf at her next destination hinted at in the picture.
For those who are new to the challenge, Clementine is working with the Times-Record this year with a special mission from Santa to spread her Christmas magic by being Santa's scout throughout local Valley City businesses.
Eight local businesses have agreed to open their doors to Clementine whenever she decides to spend some time scouting for Santa at each location this holiday season, and Clementine made her fourth stop early this morning.
Possible locations (participating businesses) are Dutton’s Parlour, Handy Hardware & Rental Center, Prairie Frame Shop, Urban Couture, NuCara Pharmacy, Smith Lumber Hardware & Rental Center, Bong’s Bootery and Central Avenue Pharmacy.
The Times-Record and Clementine invite you to help us have a little Christmas fun and try to find Clementine during each visit.
Once you find Clementine, report her location back to the Times-Record by calling 701-845-0463, leaving your name, your contact information, and her location.
For each correct answer, the guesser will be entered into a drawing for a special prize. After Clementine moves to a new location, the Times-Record will reveal her previous location and give a new hint of her current location.
Clementine knows that this will not only be fun for Times-Record readers, but it will also help her complete her special mission. The more people she sees, she will have more good information to report back to Santa.
Participants are invited to take a picture with her and share it on Facebook with @VCTimesRecord, but Facebook photos will not count towards the grand prize and are just for fun.
Clementine and the Times-Record do ask that those participating remember and abide by the most important rule of elf fun––please do not touch her or she will lose her magic and be unable to complete her mission.
For more information on Clementine's mission this Christmas season please call the Times-Record at 701-845-0463.
