    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to say Grangers ice fishing has graciously donated two six man ice huts.
    Shermans has also graciously donated a six man hut.
    Akers has also graciously donated a season pass for boat launches.

    These prizes will be rafled off and there will be a hidden weight prize, if your combined weight of three perch matches the hidden weight you will win an ice hut rental.

    The fire department would like to thank everyone who has supported the St. Williams fire department by donating prizes and purchasing tickets. :D

    We hope to see you all on Sunday.

    Thanks
    Dan Giroux

    The 3pm draw from lake Erie bait and tackle is for a fishing charter. The draw is for a fishing charter during the summer some time. The draw prize is not the boat. The 3pm draw prize is not the boat. I hope this clearls up any confusion.
