Laurens Rotary Annual Duck Race
October 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Laurens Rotary Club’s annual Rubber Duck Race is still a go despite cancellations due to COVID-19 and is scheduled for Saturday October 17 at noon. The ducks will land in the water along the walking trail at the Amphitheater and race towards the bridge on East Main Street with a finish line just short of the bridge.
Duck tickets can be purchased from any Rotarian for $5 each with all proceeds benefitting the club’s back pack program. There are cash prizes available with the first duck to cross the finish line winning $350, the second duck wins $150 and the last duck wins $100. Each ticket also includes a special coupon from the Clock of Laurens and Whiteford’s of Laurens. Scott Tollison, Laurens Rotary President said, “We appreciate these two local restaurants stepping up to help with our tickets this year. We need the community to help by purchasing one, or hopefully more, tickets to assist with this worthy project.”
Rotary is a global network of more than 1.2 million members world-wide who believe that great things happen when dedicated minds come together. Rotary International has been focused on eradicating polio by partnering with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world Health Organization, and UNICEF to end polio, once and for all.
