Rotary Richard stands on the ice of Dutch Lake.

Rotary Richard stands on the ice of Dutch Lake after being placed there Friday morning. People are invited to guess when the ice will go out from the lake (as measured by a rock at Richard’s feet falling through, stopping the clock on his chest and raising his flag).

Money raised will be used for Clearwater Rotary Club projects such as scholarships and student exchanges. Last year’s date was March 22.
