CANADA DAY 2011: Rotarys ducks set to swim

ELORA - The Centre Wellington Rotary Club’s annual July 1 Duck Race will be held here at Bissell Park as part of the village’s annual Dominion Day celebrations. 

That race will follow the annual parade through the downtown.

The Ducks will be tossed into the Grand River at 1:15pm.

The fastest floating ducks to cross the finish line will be declared the winner.

Ticket holders of the winning ducks will win one of the donated prizes ranging from a bicycle from Salem Cyclery; a night and breakfast at the Drew House Bed and Breakfast; an iPod Namo; and prizes from Edge Realty, Rona Elora Building Supplies and Jesters.

Duck Race tickets are $3 each or 2 for $5 and they are available from Uptown Café, Elora; Elora and Fergus Information Centres; and from the event sponsor Scotiabank, in Fergus. On the race day, Centre Wellington Rotary Club members will be selling tickets during the firefighters annual pancake and sausage breakfast.

Proceeds from the duck race go to Habitat for Humanity.
