Lions Club Just Ducky Weekend

August 23, 2011


Kick off the Autumn season September 10 & 11 at the Fly Creek Cider Mill for the Third Annual Just Ducky Weekend sponsored and hosted by the Lions Club of Cooperstown. Enjoy this family focused event from 10 am – 4 pm by racing a rubber duck along the Fly Creek and a win a prize. These racing heats are a favorite for duck entrants as well as for general public viewing. Visitors may purchase multiple ducks to enter in different races, all vying for a cash prize. Tickets for the race may be purchased from any Lions club member and/or at the event. In addition, there will be a kids carnival with games and activities galore for all to participate and enjoy.

Any youth organization that would like to get involved and sell duck race tickets are invited and encouraged to do so. For each ticket sold your organization keeps 30% of the sale. For more information about this contact Rich McCaffery ay 547-5256 or richcooperstown.

Bring your old eyeglasses and help the Lions Club assist our neighbors in the least developed countries by recycling them for their use. In addition, the Cider Mill is in full production where visitors can witness making sweet cider the old-fashioned way with its turbine water wheel.

Proceeds from this event, and others conducted by the Cooperstown Lions Club, are re-invested back in the community to help fill needs as described by not-for-profit organizations through the Lions Club Mini Grant Program. For more information about the Just Ducky Weekend overall, contact Event Chair and Club President Jason Tabor at 437-8197.
