DOVER-FOXCROFT — The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC)/Miosac Club will again be conducting its annual Sebec Lake Ice Out Contest in 2018. Tickets may be purchased from any club member from Feb. 15 through March 31.

Monies raised will be used to maintain a variety of club projects in the Dover-Foxcroft area. The person who guesses the closest date and time the ice will go out of the Narrows at Sebec Lake will receive a $100 check.

Ice out dates on Sebec Lake have been recorded since May 1879. Research on the dates were released by the Sebec Lake Fish and Game Association with the assistance of Ruth Weatherbee. In the spring of 1976, former GFWC/Miosac Club member Laura Stacy came up with the idea of a “Sebec Lake Ice Out Guessathon.” It is now known as the Ice Out Contest.

This has become an annual event for the club since its inception with much anticipation from local residents. This year’s judges will be Tom and Doris Coy.

For more information or for tickets, please call Anne Cress at 717-7576 or any GFWC/Miosac Club member.
