If you haven’t seen him already, stop by and visit Hollis, the Duck Man, when you see him selling rubber ducky numbers for the first 50-50 Ken-Ducky Derby to be held August 19 at the park at 1:00. The price per duck chance is $10 or a special Quack-Pack of $50 buys you six. It is a fun fund raiser and includes a special prize for the ladies for the most attractive and appropriate hat. The Historical Society’s part of the 50-50 will go toward maintenance of the park.

“The race will take place in about all of fifteen minutes,” says Hollis, who hopes people will stick around and buy a hot dog, some of his maple baked beans, or a dessert for a buck a choice. “It will also be a great time for people to try out the new trail and just have a good time.” (If you’ve never had his baked beans, you’re missing something very special!)

You do not have to be present to win, but come for the fun.
