Negaunee 40th Pioneer Days Parade 2019
Teal Lake Melt-Down Check Presentation
Ishpeming MI – The Teal Lake Melt-Down fundraiser officially came to an end on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 12:18 PM when the headframe submerged through the ice. The headframe was placed on the ice in early February, and until March 31 the community purchased $5 tickets for a guess as to when it would submerge.
Christine Koski guessed the headframe would go out of sight on April 26 at 1:07 PM, making her the closest guess and the lucky winner of $1,508.00.
A check presentation was held at the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Dave Hallgren and Neil Lynch of the Negaunee Lions Club, together with Bob Hendrickson, Executive Director of the GINCC, congratulated Koski on her win. Hallgren was the seller of this year’s winning ticket.
2019 marks the third year that the Negaunee Lions Club held this fundraiser, and the first year that the GINCC has partnered for it. Previous winners guessed April 20 at 10 a.m. in 2016, and April 9 at 3 a.m. in 2017.
