On Saturday night at the dinner I gave Janet $5.00 to buy me five ducks for the duck race since I was going to be away. For a looney one could buy a duck and usually all 300 ducks are bought. The ducks are taken out into the water and released and the first duck that reaches the shore wins the race and the person who bought that duck wins $150 (half of the total $300 raised for that event).

Dave presented me with the winning money, and I gave it right back as a donation to the Wharf Preservation Society..
One of the favorite games at the Family Day Activities was the "Pottie Toss" where children tossed a pack of toilet tissue into a "toilet". Janet and Vicki who were in charge of this game found a 1960s blue toilet that had been placed along the roadside for pickup and converted it into this game. Someone must have installed a new low flush modern toilet to replace the outdated "blue" toilet. I wonder who?
