A chicken was the main attraction during a fourth annual fundraiser for Tyler Lake on Sunday.

Chicklet, a bird belonging to John and Janelle Carroll of Briar Hill Farm in Goshen, participated in a chicken chip raffle to raise money for the cause.

Tyler Lake residents Kathe Skibisky and Gail Cassidy organized the fundraiser, which included a silent auction and food sales. They were hoping to raise more than $3,500 to add to the $6,000 the fundraiser netted in its first three years. 

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Tyler Lake Protective Association's effort to improve the water quality of the lake.
