Ducks bucks

by Shirley Sisk

The Kiwanis Club of Fremont sponsored their annual Ducks for Bucks Race hosted by many nonprofit agencies and schools who participated by selling racing duck adoptions raising $30,949. This money will be distributed to a variety of Tri-City agencies.

The top duck seller was the Newark Girls Softball League, which sold 1,692 ducks - the most ever for any organization in the 12 years since the event began. A total of 28 organizations participated in the race, and a record 9,074 ducks were in the water at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont. Each year the Kiwanis Club holds the Ducks for Bucks race on the last Saturday of April.
