There is snow on the ground and the Big Daddy Duck race water is frigid right now, but spring is coming (yes it is!) and that means we are already hard at work on our Big Daddy Duck race.  If you are not sure what a Big Daddy Duck race is, here is the short version: we talk to local businesses and convince them to support our club by donating $100 per duck for the race. They then get a 10" rubber duck to decorate and participate in the race. The participating businesses will have the duck displayed at our booth at Start of Summer (we get a lot of traffic!), they will have their duck in the parade, they will have their logo on our website for 1 year, and they can participate in Duck Prize to see which duck is the most popular in Rockford (online voting).  We will award trophies for fastest, prettiest and slowest duck as well.  
The event is not just for businesses. If you or your family want to sponsor a duck, just let us know.
If you want in on this fun event, please contact any Rockford Rotarian and ask them for a duck. Or you can click on the button below to go to the request form. Once the form has been submitted, a Rotarian will contact you. Thanks!
