WEST GLOVER — Lady Liberty has returned to West Glover for the second annual Glover Ambulance Ice Out fundraiser, and tickets are on sale just in time for Christmas.
Last year, the Glover Ambulance began the event as a way to help fundraise while honoring a fun piece of local lore.
This year, the fun begins just in time for the holidays.
According to legend, West Glover’s Lone Tree Hill was once considered as the location for the Statue of Liberty.
The proximity to Canada made the location quite attractive.
Instead, she was sent to New York Harbor.
Now, she will return to West Glover every winter in the form of a beautiful wooden replica, painted by the 2018-2019 Lake Region Union High School art students.
Throughout the season the statue will be moved around the lake, so keep an eye out for her.
You can even take photos when you see her and submit them to the Glover Ambulance’s Facebook page for a chance to win other prizes.
Watch the Glover Ambulance’s Facebook Page for additional ticket sale locations and Lady Liberty Fun.
Tickets go on sale at several area businesses this Wednesday, December 18, including C&C in Barton, Nick’s Snack Shack in Barton, EM Browns in Barton, the Glover Town Clerk’s Office, Parker Pie in Glover and the Westmore Town Clerk’s Office.
Tickets are also available at the Glover Ambulance Bay or by contacting the Glover Ambulance through Facebook.
Tickets will be available until the ice goes out.
The winner will receive half the proceeds and the rest will go directly to the Glover Ambulance Squad.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
