LEWISTON – The Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club will hold its annual Duck Race at noon Sunday, Aug. 20, at the Great Falls Balloon Festival.

This is the 14th year that the fleet of yellow rubber duckies will be released into the canal at Main Street. Each duck will carry a tag with the name of a sponsor; the first duck over the finish line will win $1,000. Tags are $5, available from members of the Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club. Flocks of 15 may be purchased for $50.

“This is a really fun event; we hope a lot of people will join us for the race,” said Michael Williams, president of the club. “But more important is that the money we raise goes to help local charities like the Boys and Girls Club, Camp Susan Curtis and the Good Shepherd Food Pantry.”

Rotary International is a nonprofit service organization. The Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club provides nearly $30,000 a year in grants to local and international charities through its fundraisers.

The group meets on Wednesday mornings at the United Methodist Church of Auburn on Park Street. For more information about the club or its work in the community, contact Williams at 784-9164, ext. 3629, or 1-800-927-3344, ext. 3629, or by e-mail at mwilliams @androscogginbank.com.
