With the sale of the Dan Patch Days button and the first clue for the Horseshoe Hunt, 2019 DPD Buttonresidents know that Dan Patch Days is approaching!  Collector buttons are sold for $5 at the Savage Public Library,  Savage City Hall, and any Dan Patch Historical Society Board Member.  The first button was sold in 1953 and the entire collection is on display at the museum at the library. A button is mandatory to participate in the horseshoe hunt.  The horseshoe hunt started 20 years ago as a means to spark some interest in the history of the city.    Clues appear on the Dan Patch Historical Society website, www.danpatch.com, and the Savage Pacer, five weeks before the event to find the hidden horseshoe located on public property.  The finder receives $100 and an opportunity to ride in the grand parade.  The button and the hunt are sponsored by the Dan Patch Historical Society with the clue master being one of its members.


The Dan Patch Days button raffle winners will be announced on Sunday, June 23rd at the Heritage Room located at the Savage Public Library.  The grand prize is a specially handmade quilt. Second prize is a custom wine rack, and third prize is the book and DVD   “The Great Dan Patch and the Remarkable Mr. Savage,”  and a drink glass from the Savage Municipal liquor store circa 1950.
