Prairie City couple finds golden-color bottle stashed at local park

Jared and Kristen Howell, of Prairie City, who are directing their donation to Hope4Paws of Grant County, pause for a photo in front of the footbridge at Beck-Kiwanis Park where they found their treasure-hunt reward: a commemorative gold color bottle.

ONTARIO — Ontario was home to one of the six commemorative gold-colored bottles that was hidden around the state in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Oregon’s Bottle Bill. The Hidden Bottle Hunt ran July 7-11 with clues released each day for the respective zones.

The clues were not easy, but a Prairie City couple eventually discovered the park they were pointing to was right next door to Ontario’s fairgrounds and rodeo arena: Beck-Kiwanis Park in the 400 block of Northwest Eighth Avenue.
