A school custodian in Antigo was working this week when they found something surprising, an envelope with lunch money that was lost in the mid 1980s.
The unnamed custodian was getting West Elementary School ready for the start of fall classes, and had removed a bench where kids normally remove their shoes and boots. The hidden envelope was found behind the bench with $3.60 inside.
It was addressed to Ann Marie Steber, a sixth grader at the time and she’s now Ann Mroczenski of Wausau. She says she probably lost it during the 1985-’86 school year.
The money was returned to the student’s mother who still lives in Antigo.
