Winner Announced!

We were able to locate our winner quickly and easily this afternoon - it is Emily Wiggett of North Danville, Vermont.  Emily had guessed 4:31 today - only one minute from the 4:32 actual time.  She was closest.  I made a quick call to her cell and she was traveling on Route 2, but was happily surprised with the news.  

We will invite her to attend our May 27th meeting to pick up her check and certificate.  

Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's Ice-Out Contest successful by buying or selling tickets or helping us to distribute them or just spread the excitement.  We wish everyone could win.

THE CLOCK HAS STOPPED!

The clock stopped today, Sunday, April 23, 2017, at 4:32 p.m.!  The ice got very dark today and as has happened before, the flag tipped precariously and then while Diane had her back turned doing yard work, it went down.  We will let everyone know as soon as we have verified a winner.
Here are the pictures for this morning - not much change. We has a low of 31 degrees last night, so everything froze up.  Today it's going to be warmer, but still only in high 40s or low 50s - except in the sun, perhaps it will get a little warmer.  We're expecting 70s on Thursday, and
I'm thinking that might do the ice in and the clock will stop.
Diane said it was very hard to get a picture this morning due to the sun shining so brightly.  Nobody is complaining, though.  It's been several days since we've seen sunshine, and we're really happy to have a pretty day.

Don't forget the buffet supper a week from today at the Danville Inn.   This will be a great meal, and it's for a very worthy cause.  It's important to have a safe place for these little animals that find themselves homeless for one reason or another.  They need medical care and food, and all that costs.  Through the generosity of Steve Cobb at the Danville Restaurant and Inn, and the KAS volunteers, this a really nice way we can help.
