Lack of water in the Lamar Canal this year has prompted the Lamar Rotary to alter plans for the annual “Ducky Dash” fundraising event during Lamar Days this year. 

Judy Turpin, Rotary President, said the event will go on as planned at Noon on May 18 at Willow Creek Park, even though their mascot, “Quackers” will be high and dry. 

“We’re going to use student volunteers in grades K-5 to race for us this year,” Turpin explained.  The course for the dash will be between 50 and 100 yards and the students who place 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the race will draw from the raffle tickets for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.  The top prizes are $750, $500 and $250 respectively.  Tickets are $5 each or a six pack costs $25 and are available from any Rotarian.
