Annual Duck Race is On! - Virtually
The twenty-ninth Annual Rotary Duck Race which was originally planned for this summer will be held on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 as part of the Rotary Club’s regular weekly meeting. 
Brooke Martin, club president, said the club wants to comply with safety issues caused by Covid19 and decided against a large gathering.  Instead, the tickets purchased by about 2000 individuals will be placed in a kiddie pool and drawn randomly.  These tickets were sold by club members and twenty-five non-profit agencies.  The proceeds will support their projects in the community. 
Prizes will be awarded to holders of the winning certificates.  First Prize is an award of $1000 cash.  There will be almost 100 additional prizes with a total value of about $5,000.
For a complete listing of participating charities/non-profits who will benefit from this event and who are selling Rotary Duck Race tickets, please see below.  Last year, the Rotary Club gave more than $10,000 to the 25 participating community groups and agencies on a pro-rata basis. 
Since the inception of the Rotary Duck Race, The Rotary Club of Pottstown has contributed more than $365,000 to non-profit organizations in the Pottstown area because of this wonderful event.
