LOGAN, W.Va. — It’s that time of the year again when the Lions Club of Logan will be hosting it’s annual fundraiser.
The Lions Club Rubber Duck Race has become a late summer fixture of Logan County. The fun filled event features a host of polymer mallards turned loose in the Guyandotte River. Each of the ersatz ducks has a number painted upon it and the first duck to cross the finish line wins.
If this does not sound fun or exciting consider that for a $5 donation to the Lions Club you can get a ticket with a duck’s number imprinted upon it… and if your duck wins the race you win $1,000 and a free meal, courtesy of the Lions Club!
The Club members announced the opening of Rubber Duck season recently at a special meeting at the Hot Cup in Logan.
Duck race tickets will be available from members of the club and at the Aracoma Story Inc. where you can often find a friendly Lion taking up tickets and assisting in the parking of cars.
The Rubber Ducky Race will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, at 11:30 a.m.
