The Waukegan Historical Society has announced the first participants to complete the game and find all 50 puzzle pieces from the exhibit "Pieces of the Past." Norm Wideburg and his son-in-law Rob Proce, both of Waukegan, were the first to report finding all 50 puzzle pieces along with their secret codes.

"Pieces of the Past" is a self-guided, interactive exhibit and game where participants are encouraged to find large puzzle pieces throughout all of the Waukegan Park District parks. Each puzzle piece tells a unique story about the history of Waukegan's parks and contains a secret code that can be recorded in the official "Pieces of the Past" brochure. Brochures can be found at the Waukegan History Museum, 1911 N. Sheridan Road in Bowen Park, as well as other participating Waukegan Park District facilities. It can be downloaded online at www.waukeganhsitorical.org.

Wideburg and Proce brought their completed brochures to the Waukegan History Museum on July 12 to collect their rewards. Wideburg and Proce started their quest to find all 50 puzzle pieces on July 3 and they completed their task in less than one week.

"Pieces of the Past" is an exhibit of the Waukegan Historical Society in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Waukegan Park District. It runs through Oct. 15.
