After last year, who would have thought we would have such a winter this year? But it's more like Spring than late winter, and the forecast calls for 50 degree weather and rain over the next couple of days. Consequently, the Emerson Ice Fishing Derby that was rescheduled for this Saturday, Februray 27th has been cancelled for this year because of unsafe ice conditions.

If you have purchased a derby ticket it is still eligible for the top prizes of an Ice Auger of $500 cash. Tickets will also be eligible for numerous raffle items. If you do not want to be part of the raffle and would like a full refund, please contact Kim Frazier at the Conners-Emerson School by emailing kfrazier@mdirss.org or calling her at 288-3631 X1074
