Local Rotarians know that next Sunday – September 6th 2015 is Duck Race Day on Gore Creek in Vail, Colorado.
You don’t have much time left to buy your Race Day Duck from the folks at the Vail Rotary. Thanks to the efforts of the ECT and Vail Rotary – there is still time to buy your Duck online (Click Here) and tell Vail Rotarian [Larry Agneberg] that the ECT sent you! Larry is this year’s Duck Race Chairperson.
The Vail Duck Race supports our local Rotarian’s Scholarship Fund for our students here at home. Who better to buy your Race Duck from – than the former President of our Public School District Board – than Jeanne “Duck Dame” McQueeney. You may know her today as current Eagle County Commissioner – Jeanne McQueeney. The ECT folks know her as the lady that sold us 5 Race Ducks because she wouldn’t sell us 4!
Ownership and Race Day credit for the 5th our of 4 Ducks is still under discussion between the Duck Dame and the ECT. Stay Tuned…
