The annual Start of Summer Duck Race is just around the corner and Rotarians are ready and willing to sell you your chance to win the grand prize of $500 and two other wins of $250 each. New Duck Race Chair Erik Luxhoj came up with the brilliant idea of borrowing the cutest neighbor kid around and had her sell the tickets door to door (with supervision). If you see Carley, be sure to buy your ticket for this year’s duck race or contact any Rockford Rotarian.
