“Everyone looks forward to the Ugly Duck Derby each year. The sound of 10,000 ducks swooshing down the slide is always exciting. But with COVID-19 restrictions we knew things would be different. But the community always comes together and I believe they will do the same now. We are very excited to have the top prize of $4,000; who could not use that? In addition they will cover over 50 other prizes to give away,” said Timber Browning, Program Director of Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence County.
