Vergennes Day - Rubber Ducky Fund Raiser

Although I don't have all the statistics yet we do want to thank everyone who supported the Rotary Club of Vergennes by participating in the Rubber Ducky race.

This fund raiser helps us fund our college scholarship program. We award 6 scholarships totaling $ 4,500 each year.

Thanks again everyone and we hope to see you back here next year.
