Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who entered our first annual Ice-Out Challenge!

Ice-Out Challenge

Guess the date and time when a concrete block will break through the ice on Lake Iroquois, Vermont, and you’ll win 50% of the pot!

The proceeds from this year’s challenge will go towards developing an educational program to increase and incentivize lakeshore property owner participation in the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s Lake Wise program. The Lake Wise Program works with lakeshore property owners to create landscaping that enhances shoreline protection of the lake.

84% of the goal has been reached

We’ve reached 84% of our $2,500 goal. We’re almost there — push us over the top!
