Zoe Landes wins the turtle race
Zoe Landes had the fastest turtle at the 57th Annual Rotary Club Turtle Race held in Cherokee. Landis’ turtle won its heat and then won the overall race. There were 205 turtles entered this year. Tyler Mead and Kelby Chace went together to purchase the winning turtle. The Rotary Club splits the winning three ways, one-third goes to the child with the turtle, one-third to the buyer and one-third stays with the Rotary club. This year $6,549 was raised with each of the three receiving $2,183.
