Please note that this contest is now over.

The answers are listed along with the given name of the person who solved each one. We did our best reading these names, and apologize if we misread or were unable to read a signature. Please feel free to write in and correct us if you see an error.

If you can be the first to figure out the answer to one of the questions below and bring that answer to the booth at Founders' Day, you'll win a free T-shirt. Some of the questions are harder than others; remember that you have to be the first with a correct answer for a particular question. Answers can be found in a variety of places; some can be found online on; others can be found in the library; a few can be found in popular Saugus books: Of Time and the River and A Gathering of Memories; still others can be found on plaques and monuments in town. We're starting off the day with T-shirts available in a variety of colors and sizes, but size selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis we recommend that you figure out your clue early so you can get your pick of T-shirt color and size.
