As Canada turned 150, the Arnprior Rotary club celebrated Canada Day with its own celebration of “The Annual Rotary Mad Duck Race”. This event has been going on for 10 years. 

1500 ducks were dumped in the Madawaska River.

Retrieving the ducks came in various forms. Motor boats, a dog, seadooers and kayakers. Happy Birthday Canada and a good job done Rotarians. It was another fundraiser sellout year. 


The two winners of the Arnprior Rotary Club Canada Day duck race were presented with their first-and second-place cheques.

This was the 10th annual race, with the proceeds going to support projects including the Children Summer Reading Program at the Arnprior Public Library, worldwide eradication of  polio, the 'Who is Nobody' school program and many other projects.
