Monforton School is holding its 2nd Annual Duck Derby!  The money raised from Duck Derby sales benefits Monforton School’s 8th graders’ American History trip to Washington D.C. and New York City.

On Friday at 11:00 a.m., more than 2,500 plastic ducks are going to race down the Madison River from the Canaday Public Boat Launch at the Hwy 84 bridge to Damselfly fishing access.

The sponsor of the winning duck will get $4000 in prizes:  $1000 cash, $1000 gas from Town Pump and Conoco, $1000 groceries from Lee and Dad’s and Rosaur’s, and $1000 car repair from Billion Auto Group.  Over a hundred local businesses have supported the event.
