There is still time to adopt your little plastic ducks for the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) Duck Derby! The Duck Derby will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23 at Pittsford Recreational Area.

Adopted ducks will enter the creek and race to the finish for cash prizes. All proceeds go towards the care of homeless animals in our community.
