United Way Hosts First Annual Wacky Quacky Duck Derby At Prairie Creek Park

The goal was to adopt out 1,500 ducks by August 28, 2023 and have a chance to win $500 cash from our local Farmers Bank. 551 ducks were sold.

One way to adopt a duck was via United Way of Clinton County Facebook page, Each duck had a number and a name. The person adopting the duck then scanned the QR CODE or text QUACK to a number and an email was sent with the name of adopted duck.
