3-year-old boy wins Rotary’s Ice Melt contest

SUMMIT COUNTY – Three-year-old Aiden McGeehan will be a little bit richer come Tuesday. The little boy from Grand Junction will be presented with a $2,000 check as the winner of the Rotary’s Ice Melt contest. The clock stopped on May 16 at 7 p.m., three minutes and 14 seconds, and Aiden had the winning ticket, six minutes and 18 seconds from the exact time.

“It’s going in his college savings account,” said his grandmother Traci McGeehan of Silverthorne. She, along with her husband Terry, purchased the ticket in Aiden’s name early this year.

According to Traci, Terry is a longtime Rotarian, and every year he purchases leftover tickets for his family members. Aiden’s name has been entered every year since his birth.

The second place winner of $750 went to Brian Follett from Woodbury, Minn. (11 min and 12 seconds from exact time). And third place ($500) went to Brandee Zeal of Phoenix, Ariz. (21 min and six seconds from exact time.)
