OTTER LAKE Feb. 3, 2018
There was something for everyone in Otter Lake on Saturday, as expert anglers dropped lines through the ice with the help of ambitious amateurs by their sides, the sharp-eyed shooters took their shot at dart boards indoors and those that were looking to get the blood flowing a bit quicker hit the rink for a ball hockey tournament.
That’s because the Otter Lake Fire Department held their annual fishing derby on Saturday, in support of the crew and some extras they need to provide for the staff.
“By putting this on, we buy our own clothes, uniforms, stationery, and can also make donations to diabetes and cancer funds,” said Lt. Lee Vadneau, of the Otter Lake Fire Department. “Last year we bought coats for all the firefighters.”
That’s not all they look to provide for their team, though, as money raised will also benefit the firefighters by extending their life insurance coverage beyond working hours. Vadneau explained that while everyone was covered while on the job, if anything happens to them outside of that, their coverage wouldn’t extend for that.
