The first ever St. Clair Rotary Club Pine River Turtle Race was ran on August 29th at Rotary Centennial Park in St. Clair. It was a beautiful day with a strong southwesterly breeze that helped propel the rubber turtles to the finish line.
The winners were:
First prize ($1500): Branden Hunt
Second prize ($1000): Melody Scheweiger
Third prize ($500): Catherine Hicks
With the generous support of our sponsors and adoption centers, there were 4,281 turtles "adopted" for the race resulting in $27,835 raised!
Thank you to all who participated and we hope to see you again next year!
