Ice Out: Windham County Meadows Madness

WIN MONEY FOR YOU & YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL ORGANIZATION

GUESS WHEN THE CHEESE WILL FALL THROUGH THE ICE

Here's how it works:
A wheel of "cheese" will be floated on a pallet in the Retreat Meadows. You pay $5 to guess when it will fall through the ice. You pick the day and the hour. You can buy as many guesses as you wish.

If you win, you will get 50% of the total pot; 25% will go to the organization from whom you bought your guess; and 25% will go to this year's vticeout.org designated charity, the Boys & Girls Club.

BRATTLEBORO -- The Brattleboro Rotary raised more than $9,000 with their International Film & Food Festival in November, which is enough to completely fund the construction of an adobe house for a needy family in Guanajuato, Mexico.

The money generated from ticket sales and advertising totaled more than $8,000, and a $968 grant from Rotary International put the grand total at $9,196. This means the Rotary can pay for the solar collectors and the water pump for this particular house in addition to the construction costs.
