Posted:  Friday, May 25, 2018 - 9:30am

On Saturday, May 26, 2018 at 11:30 am, 3,500 rubber ducks will take the plunge over the falls in Camden and will swim into Camden Harbor.  Each of the 3,500 ducks represents a chance to win one of seven great prizes.  Raffle tickets which correspond with the numbered ducks are just $5 each or $20 for five tickets.  

 The prizes are:

  • 7 nights at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, Naples, FL (valued at over $2,200) + $1,000
  • One Week Stay at Beddington Lake Camp – donated by Jan Campbell

  • $200 gift certificate to 47 West – donated by Dr. David Olivas DDS
  • $50 gift certificate to 47 West 

Tickets can be purchased from any West Bay Rotarian.  Don’t know anyone in the club?  No problem - every Saturday until race day, West Bay Rotarians will sell tickets in front of French & Brawn from 10am to 4pm and in front of Camden National Bank - Camden Square from 10am to 12pm.  You can also message West Bay Rotary at facebook.com/WestBayDuckDerby.

For the first time, children attending the race can take home one of the ducks that swim into Camden Harbor.  

The Duck Derby is always a fun time, but the most important part of this event is that it is a fundraiser for West Bay Rotary.  NET PROCEEDS FROM THIS ANNUAL EVEN WILL BENEFIT LOCAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.  The more tickets that they sell, the more money they have to support the local community.

West Bay Rotary would like to thank their event and annual sponsors.  The continued support of these organizations make it possible for West Bay Rotary to continue to make the Midcoast better one family, one child, one person at a time.
