Ice Melt Contest concludes on Keweenaw Bay

The Baraga County Chamber of Commerce announced the completion of its Second Annual Ice Melt Contest on Keweenaw Bay. The barrel’s clocks went under the ice of Lake Superior on March 22 at 3:21:24 a.m. The village of Baraga crew rescued the barrel from its icy location by boat. LeAnn LeClaire was the winner with the closest guess, not quite eight hours off of the actual time of submersion. Her winnings totaled $288. This event is an annual fundraiser for the Baraga County Chamber of Commerce. (Photo courtesy of the Baraga County Chamber of Commerce)
