Here’s a fun contest for you, run by Clearwater Rotary! Guess when the ice will go out on Dutch Lake. That gentleman out on the lake is our wooden man called “Rotary Richard.” He’s wearing a clock. When the ice beneath him melts, a trigger will remove the clock’s battery, stopping the clock.

Check the businesses around town for sign-up sheets where you can select your unique date and time.

Guesses are $2 each or three guesses for $5.

A gift certificate for the store of your choice will be given to the person who chooses the exact date and time, or the one closest to it.
