Organizers thank participants, congratulate winners of Grand Valley Duck Race

by Randy McClelland

GRAND VALLEY - Grand Valley Lions Club  officials want to thank everyone who purchased tickets for the club’s Duck Race last month.

Unfortunately the Grand River did not cooperate and water levels were extremely high, creating very unsafe conditions, so the ticket stubs were drawn out of a drum. The winners included:

- Marg Beam, of Grand Valley, first prize of $1,000 sponsored by Thomasfield Homes;

- Jeff Becket, of Grand Valley, second prize of $1,000 sponsored by Orica Canada Inc.;

- Marg Sidey, of Shelburne,  third prize of $500 sponsored by Greenwood Construction Co.;

- Laura Edwards, of Grand Valley, fourth prize of $350 sponsored by R. J. Burnside & Associates Limited;

- John Camelford, of Guelph, fifth prize of $250 sponsored by Bell; and

- Angie Walker, of Grand Valley, sixth prize of $250 sponsored by MacMaster Pontiac Buick GMC.

The Lions Club would like to thank all the sponsors, merchants who sold tickets and all the groups who were at Hereward Park.

The 17th Grand Valley Lions’ Duck Race will be held on May 26, 2012.
