The Kiwanis Club Car on Ice Contest vehicle was retrieved from the pond at Hurley Park in Milbank on Monday, March 6. Jessel Stengel of Milbank was the grand prize winner of $500. She was just four minutes off the actual sinking time. Stengel guessed 4:20 p.m. on Saturday, February 18, and the timer registered it went down at 4:24 p.m. on that date.
Chad Thue and Jeremy Hepper were the runners-up and collected $50 each. “There were 21 guesses for February 18 -the date the car sank,” said Kiwanis event coordinator Kay O’Farrell. Proceeds from the contest benefit the children of Grant County.
