The Run for the Roses? The Indianapolis 500? No!! The Great Rubber Ducky Race! The thrill of racing without any of the danger!
The Friends of the Norwich Public Library invites you to come to Huntley Meadow and Blood Brook to cheer on the racers. Saturday, June 9th at 11:00 AM.
The duckies have been training hard, and are ready to make their sponsors proud. The course down Blood Brook promises to be fast and challenging this year, and only the most courageous of duckies will cross the finish line. There will be three heats in the Great Rubber Ducky Race, and if your sponsored ducky is one of the winners, prizes (and the thrill of victory) will be your reward.
In addition to Ducky Racing there will also be crafts and games under the Pavilion with Children's Librarian Beth Reynolds. Plus, there will be general merriment for young and old.
Duckies can be sponsored at the Norwich Public Library from now until Race Day, and then on Race Day itself at the Meadow. $5 sponsors one racing ducky, 6 duckies for $25.
All proceeds go to support many wonderful programs and activities of the Library.
