What happens when you CAN NO LONGER dROp 12,000 rubber ducks ?

Every year in the past, Lacey Rotary staged the wildest event of the fundraising season- 12,000 rubber ducks racing to the finish line trying to win prizes for their lucky ticket holders.  But this year we are forced to do it differently. There was a spill in the Deschutes River, which is still undergoing clean up. This prevented us from holding our event at Tumwater Falls Park. This year we will have a raffle drawing at 4pm at the Thurston County Fairgrounds.
There will be food, music, and activities for the kids from 11am until 4pm. We will hold the drawing at 4pm and winners will be announced by 5pm. You do not need to be present to win, just buy your duck ticket!
The real winners continue to be the area youth and charities. Every dollar the Lacey Rotary receives from ticket sales goes to local charities, community service and international service projects.
This year on June 1st, at the County Fairgrounds, - a raffle for some great prizes.
The raffle will be at 4:00 PM on the 1st Saturday in June.  But the FUN starts at 11:00 AM.  That is when you can come on down and sample delectable delights at the Family Food and Fun Fair, with a variety of victuals served up by local eateries.
And once you've satisfied your hunger, you can sit back and enjoy lots of live music and entertainment provided by area high schools and middle schools. Don't forget to let your young ones have a romp in the Kids World, where there are all sorts of FREE activities, games, and chances to win lots of prizes!!!
To enter the raffle for your chance to win one of this year's amazing prizes you can buy your duck ticket (or a whole flock) from any Lacey Rotarian, or at any participating ticket outlet, or the day of the event at the park.  $5 per duck or $100 for a whole flock!
