Holiday Lights

Annual Holiday Lights contest by Vergennes Rotary

Vergennes Lights the Way

The Vergennes Area Rotary Club is once again sponsoring their Holiday Decoration Contest! This year we would like to be an extension of Governor Scott’s “Vermont Lights the Way”.

Our challenge to both homes and businesses is to light up their front yards and store fronts for a friendly competition and to raise every ones spirits. We will be choosing 1 business winner and 3 winners for private homes within the 5 town area (Vergennes, Ferrisburgh, Waltham, Panton, and Addison). Judging will be conducted Monday Dec. 21st. Winners will be notified and prizes given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best for home decoration. The best business display has an opportunity to have Rotary to make a donation to their favorite charity as well..

Duck Race 2020

Virtual Duck Race 2020

Masked Duck

Well, like most things in this Covid 19 era our Duck Race will be a little different this year. We will be having an animated virtual race. We still need your help to continue to be able to provide/support great programs for our youth in Addison County. Scholarships, Meals, and Literacy are 3 top areas where your Greater Vergennes Rotary actively provides support but we can't do it without you.

Race and results information is below as available.

2019 Annual Rubber Ducky Fundraiser/Race

Vergennes Day is just around the corner and Vergennes Rotary is gearing up for their annual Rubber Ducky Race. It will be held during the Vergennes Day weekend on Saturday, August 24th. The ducks will be launched at the base of the Vergennes falls at 3:00 PM.

The proceeds from this annual fundraiser go toward supporting our youth. We sponsor the summer reading program "Booked for Bikes" and award 6 college scholarships each year. This is just a small part we play in investing in our youth, the community, and our future.

Tickets are $3.00 each, or 4 for $10.00. The First Place ticket holder will receive $250, Second Place receives $100, and Third Place receives $50.

We are also asking our business friends to help us support our kids’ educational dreams by sponsoring a Big Duck. The cost is only $50. The winner of this year’s Big Duck race will win a $250 donation to a charity of their choice.

If you would like to buy a ticket or sponsor a big duck just talk to one of the Vergennes Rotary members you know and they will be glad to help. You may also purchase your tickets (or sponsor a Big Duck) right here using the "Buy Now" button below.

Tickets will also be on sale around town leading up to the race and in the park until 2PM the day of the race.

Thank you in advance for your support, it’s greatly appreciated.
