To the Editor:

On behalf of the Rotary Club of New Milford, we extend our appreciation to New Milford community for its outstanding support of the 21st annual Great Housatonic Duck Race on Memorial Day.

The generous support of the duck adopters and the local merchants who offered tickets for sale helped to make our fundraiser a success.

Our gratitude to Chris Gardner for volunteering his time and his boat and many thanks to the New Milford Police Department’s dive team and to Michael Gold and his sons for their help on the river.

Special thanks to the Rotarians who helped to plan and execute a great race.

We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.

Congratulations to the prize winners: Amy Davis, Gerard Ciccarelli, Ken Taylor, Brie Boone and Deb Spaziante.

The funds raised will be donated back to our community and allow the New Milford Rotary Club to continue the tradition of “Service Above Self”.
