Nathan Fregien’s Father’s Day will be a little more special this year. The Embarrass man was the winner of a John Deere Riding Lawn Mower from Caroline Implement and WTCH, ESPN AM/FM, WOWN FM and Frog Country Radio stations.
The annual event allows listeners to qualify to be part of a circle that the lawn mower rides around, hoping that it runs out of gas at the part of the circle that they are standing in. This year, that happened for Fregien, who said the win comes a good time.
“I do need a new mower, the one I have is not cutting it” Fregien joked. “Every year I am having to fix it, or change the blade, but not anymore.”
Over 60 participants qualified for the circle, giving them a chance to win. Some chose to sit, others stood.
“I was thinking it is not out of gas yet and it has at least another round to go” Fregien said. “I heard no sputtering, I was looking the other way and heard it stop very abruptly.
With a yell and arms raised high, Fregien shouted out the words that came to him right away.
“The Best Dad”
Nathan’s son was right there to see his dad have his exciting moment. “He’s going to ride with me for sure.”
When he was asked what he was going to do next…
“I feel like I’m going to mow the lawn” said Fregien. “This is going to be my first John Deere.”
Congratulations to Nathan Fregien of Embarrass and a big thank you for all of those who qualified for this years contest.
