The Great Duck Race  (The Leader)

The Morrisburg & District Lions Duck Race was once again a big hit on Sunday, August 4, down at the Morrisburg Beach: but when it comes to star power, the five dogs who pulled prize winning ducks from the water were the true champs of the day. All 1,200 duck tickets were sold, and the Lions will use the funds raised for community activities and to support the five, $500 bursaries given to Seaway DH School grads. With the Leos keeping the ducks corralled on the water, the five dogs leaped in, and each brought out a duck. Winners were Ted Harriman, 5th, $100 Rileys Valu-mart gift certificate, Kim Morrow, 4th, $100 Canadian Tire gift certificate, Brenda King, 3rd, $100 Giant Tiger gift certificate,  Sharon Goddard, 2nd ($200) and 1st prize winner ($500), Bonnie Garlough and duck, Rocket. From the left are Robin Locke and Finnegan, Leanne Casselman and Katie, Juli Strader and Cocoa, Jim Martin and Addison and Wendy Graham with Floyd. Holding the Lions banner are (l-r) organizers,  Lions Judy Charette and Tracey Veinotte, who thanked the community for its support. As MC Janeen Wagemans said, “Not one duck was injured in this event.” And a good time was had by all.  (August 4th, 2013)
