Where's Wizelee?

This is Wizelee Wizard. He’s a friend of First State Bank & Trust Co. who has spent the last 15 years teaching the youth of Fremont about Saving and Spending Wizelee. He is embarking on a new mission. He’s been wanting to get out of the bank to see more of Fremont. So, with it being First State Bank & Trust Company's 60th anniversary - and since we are Fremont’s only 100% locally owned community bank - we thought it’d be fun to send him on a tour to see how First State and the community have grown together.

Today’s clue is: This place has a mascot as well. I wonder if we could be friends?

UPDATE: This prize has been claimed. Thank you for participating!
