To the Editor,

With the help of many contributing community members we were able to hold our 26th Annual Duck Race to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation. All of our efforts help support children with life threatening illnesses experience a wish that is unique to them.

To the Crafts Inn, the chamber of commerce, the prize contributors, the Nick family who run a great bake sale, our Duck Squad who man the ticket sales, kids’ games, announcing, quacking contest, music playing, and coordinating this great event, it could not be done without you all. We also thank our ticket buyers for joining us.

Each year we hope will be our last but as long as there are children needing wishes we will do our part in helping raise funds for this wonderful charity. Volunteers of all ages are needed to keep this great event going. Please call Janet Boyd (802) 464-5618 to sign up.

We never held a Duck Race before when snow was in the air, but it all worked out and we will hope for warmer weather for next year for our 27th race. We hope you will join us.
