Duck race a success

To the Valley News:

The Wadhams Volunteer Fire Company held its third annual Boquet River Duck Derby on Sunday, June 16. Despite the rainy conditions, a small but enthusiastic crowd cheered the nearly 400 plastic ducks to the finish line as they were launched from the Fannie Swan Bridge. Proceeds from the derby become part of the Wadhams Fire Company Community Fund. The fund is used to assist local families and community causes during times of need. Cash prizes were awarded to the first three ducks to hit the finish line and a raffle was held following the event for the additional prizes donated by local businesses and artists.

Wadhams Fire Company would like to thank the following for their generous donations, which helped to make our event a success: Flower Designs by Tracey, Aerobie Fields Pottery, Adirondack Daylilies, Kelley handweaving, Dogwood Bread Company, Ernie’s Market, Juniper Hills Farm, Camp Dudley, Why Knot Pizza, Westport Country Club, Lake Champlain Yoga Arts, Normandie Beach Club, Everybody’s Market, Westport Main Street Diner, Bruce Misarski and Bridgette Blemel, Depot Theatre, The Inn in Westport, Glen Estus Photography, K&D Deli, Westport Hotel and Tavern and Northwaters and Langskib Wilderness Program.

We also wish to thank all those who supported our fund raising effort by purchasing tickets and coming to the event to cheer the ducks. See you next year at the derby.
