Ducky Day 2017

The 14th annual Ducky Derby went off without too many hitches.  We had the usual food tent run by the Barnet Trailblazer 4-wheeler club. 525 ducks swam for their people to win a prize and the usual 35 fastest ducks did very well!  We had some wonderful prizes and, as usual, the last duck over the finish line won some maple syrup ofr his/her renter.  There were 5 Lucky Ducks with monetary prizes awarded.  The Sitting Duck prize was a beautifully done Vermont products basket.

This year, the Lake View Grange was selling cookie & soup mixes in a jar to raise money for David's House in Lebanon, NH.  They had a table at the Derby and sales went well.  Thanks to everyone who helped by buying or working.

The planter raffle happened again this year and there were many people vying for ownership of it.  It was won by a local person.  Always a good thing to keep it in town!  The planter was made at Ben's Mill.  Several more are planned for the coming years.

The 2018 Derby will be our 15th annual. WOW! We have some great things planned for this one.  You don't want to miss it!  The 2018 Derby will be Saturday, October 6th.  We ahve also taken ownership of a new duck, Sir Quacks-a-Lot. We are working on just what he will do for the 2018 Derby as well.

See you next year and thank you very much for supporting Ben's Mill!
