Local Man Hosts Arm-Wrestling Contest as Fundraiser for Man Battling Cancer

Digby, NS - Jordan Morgan, a Digby-area man who is wrestling with a rare form of cancer, has inspired a new local fundraiser for his cause — and the organizer is prepared to take it in the arm.  Ronny Morehouse, an eight-time champion in arm wrestling, was so touched by Jordan Morgan’s story that he decided to create his own fundraising event — arm-wrestling style. Morehouse is a lobster fisherman who has been fishing since he was 13 years old. He started arm wrestling in 2013 and quickly rose to be a top contender.   Participants in the arm-wrestling fundraiser can pre-register at the Sunset Pub in advance of the March 10 event, or join the lineup at noon. Registration is $10.

Fundraiser Lets You Wager on Melting Ice

Moriah, NY | The Moriah Booster Club is hosting its first-ever Viking Ice Breaker as a fundraiser to break winter doldrums.  With the help of local contractor Adirondack Concrete, the Booster Club was able to erect a large concrete “V” and place it on Roe Pond in Witherbee over the past week.  The idea of the fundraiser is to guess when the “V” will fall into the melting ice on the pond as temperatures moderate. The closest guess wins $500. The “V” will be monitored by web camera to ensure the exact time and date are recorded.
