Having worked diligently on the Sebago Lake Region’s annual icefishing derby for nearly 8 months made it very difficult for Deb McPhail – president of the Sebago Lake Rotary Club – to have to cancel last weekend’s event due to poor ice conditions. As we all know there is very little lake ice that is safe this year. Even though Deb was “terribly disappointed” to have to cancel the main ice fishing event, select portions of the annual event were still very successful. One event in no small part due to September’s Miss America 2016 Pageant participant, Miss Maine Kelsey Earley. She and her friends helped raise over $1500 of the more than $40,00 -according to organizer of the Polar Dip, Tara Studley as reported in The Current – with all proceeds going directly to the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Everyone involved – along with all of us here – would like to thank Shaw’s Supermarket for sponsoring this year’s dip which went on thanks to much hard work and safety prep by the the Sebago Lake Rotary Club, which oversees the fishing derby. Ms. Studley is quoted saying the Rotary is always “hugely helpful with the logistics” of the dip, being responsible for cutting the hole in the ice and arranging for adequate emergency services to be present – just in case. Kudos to all who have participated in this year’s events so far, and look for the pizza challenge event upcoming in May, where again this year we can all taste, sample, and rate different area pizzas in various categories – Yum! – and hopefully exceed last year’s 500 estimated in attendance, and also exceed in the fundraising efforts category as well.
Make it a great week, and we will make sure that happens for you, if you give us a call for any and all of your Real Estate needs!
