The Rotary Club of The Pas held a contest recently to award two tickets for the Bill Bannock Classic Ice Fishing Derby and on Tuesday they handed those out to the lucky winner.
April McGillivary (left) took home the two tickets from the Fishmas Draw which was held on January 7th. On Tuesday, McGillivary was presented the tickets at the start of the club’s weekly noon hour meeting by Rotary Club President Ken Kelly.
The Bill Bannock Classic Ice Fishing Derby will run this year on April 4th on Clearwater Lake beginning at 10:30 a.m. The derby, which will be celebrating their 26th annual running this year, is a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club and draws in fishermen and women from all over the region and outside of the province as well and typically brings in upwards of 1,000 anglers each year.
Money raised through the festival is largely returned to the local community for various projects put on by the Rotary Club.
