Letter: Duck race a success

To the editor:

On behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Danvers, we would like to thank all who came out to support the 20th annual Rubber Duck Race held at Pope’s Landing on Saturday, Sept. 21. Our ducks once again raced to provide funding for scholarships for Danvers residents graduating from high school. Danvers Kiwanis is most grateful for the public’s support of this fun and rather unique annual event. All of the proceeds of the race are restricted to our scholarship fund and we are thrilled to have been able to provide $9,000 last year to graduates.

We would like to send out our gratitude to our generous donators of gift certificates for runner-up prizes: Comeau Health Care, Danversport Yacht Club, East Boston Savings Bank, Gelato Harbor Café, Goodies Ice Cream, Hartnett’s Car Wash, New Brothers Restaurant, Northern Star Dental, Tapleyville Ice Cream, Texas Roadhouse and our fellow Kiwanians who personally donated prizes.

Of course, our fun race would not be possible without the kind support and professional expertise of the Danvers harbormaster’s office, the Danvers Fire Department, Cicoria Tree Service, and the Danvers Police Explorers. Lastly we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Beverly Hospital/Lahey Health for their continued financial support and to Honey Dew Donuts on Rte. 114.

Many thanks again to all who helped and supported this annual event and Danvers Kiwanis looks forward to helping deserving students as they head off to college.
