Ice Melt contest winners announced

This year’s Dillon Ice Melt contest winners were recently announced, as the device slid through the ice on May 13, 2016. Coming in much later than last year’s time, which broke through on April 20, Rotarian Diane Monaghan said the date was in the expected range.

“We had quite a few entries for that day,” she added.

The official time was 1:10 p.m. (and 32 seconds), with a high temperature of 62 degrees. Local woman Susan Crandall took first, for the winning prize of $4,000, while Susan Bond took the second-place prize of $2,000.

There was a four-way tie for third place, with four people guessing “13:13:13:13.” The temperature served as a tiebreaker, and John Mullen took the $1,000 prize.

Second Sundays Film Series presents new film

The Second Sundays Film Series will present a new film on the second Sunday of every month. The series will start with a free showing of the Overnighters, a movie depicting the lives of people chasing the North Dakota oil boom, only to discover affordable housing is nearly impossible to find. Much of the focus is on the efforts of local pastor Jay Reinke who allowed more than 1,000 people to stay at his church over a two-year period during the oil shale boom.

The free showing is hosted by the Summit Interfaith Council, and will be held at the North Branch Library in Silverthorne on Saturday, June 12 at 7 p.m.
