Rotary duck race set to launch
The second annual Rotary Duck Race is being launched at the Home Show this weekend.
Then on Sunday Aug. 5 at 1 p.m., the ducks will be raced down the Alouette River at Maple Ridge Park.
The person with the winning duck will win a new 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4x4 donated by Maple Ridge Chrysler that will be unveiled at the Home Show this weekend.
Last year, 7,000 ducks were sold, raising $70,000 that went to youth sports and other Rotary youth projects.
The Maple Ridge chapter of KidSport, which assists with the registration costs for children who would not otherwise be able to play sports, received $25,000.
