When will Rotary Richard’s clock stop?

When the rock attached to that battery goes through the ice, it will stop the clock

Clearwater Rotary Club member Richard Christenson makes adjustments to the Rotary Richard cutout.

Exactly when will the ice melt on Dutch Lake? Join Clearwater Rotary’s guessing game. Look for the wooden cut-out of “Rotary Richard,” back on the job holding his battery-operated clock, out on Dutch Lake beginning Feb. 15.

When the rock attached to that battery goes through the ice, it will stop the clock. Everyone is invited to guess when this will happen.

Rotary members will be set up from time to time outside Safety Mart, starting on Friday, Feb. 15 from 1 until 4 p.m. to record your estimates. Cost is $2 for one, or $5 for three guesses. Be sure to write down the month, day, hour, minute and even seconds so each guess is unique.

You can also visit Clearwater Computer anytime during business hours to purchase your chance to win.

 

Last year’s winner collected $500 worth of gift certificates from local businesses, so this is worthwhile as well as being fun for everyone in the area.
