There are certain handmade items that are much coveted by the in-crowd which results in lots of paddle-waving and raised voices during the rapid-fire volleying of bids. The rest of the interesting items are donated by local businesses.

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.
