Thursday, Sept. 24 at 5:30 p.m.—PITTSFORD— The ducks will have masks this year and will socially distance as they swim! Join the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) for our annual Duck Derby to raise needed funds for the homeless animals in Rutland County. On Thursday, Sept. 24 at 5:30 p.m. adopted (plastic) ducks will be launched into the stream at the Pittsford Recreation Area. The first four ducks to reach the finish line win cash prizes. They’ll also have a cash prize for the last duck! Ducks are available for adoption at the RCHS shelter in Pittsford, you can download the information or order ducks online from their website, rchsvt.org. You can adopt a single duck for $3, a Quack-Pack (four ducks) for $10 or a 6-Quack (six ducks) for $15. Ducks can be adopted at the event, as well.
