Spofford Lake Association
Ice Out Lottery
It has become a tradition to guess the lake's ice out date. This year, it is the first date on which there is no visible ice anywhere on the lake surface at exactly 2pm in the afternoon. CHS records has the latest date being May 3, 1956. However, It has been occurring for many past decades in March and April.
Now the Spofford Lake Association has made it into a fundraiser. They are sharing the profits from this first ever ice out lottery with the Chesterfield Historical Society! We are thrilled and want to encourage you to buy as many as you can afford.
Incorporated in 1975, our mission is to stimulate interest in and document the history of the Town of Chesterfield. This is done through collections and preservation of items with historical interest and significance and by sharing them through programs, workshops and publications.
