Duck race draws crowd

How refreshing to see the water flowing over the dam on Saturday at RiverPark’s annual Duck Race. The temperatures were in the mid 80s but that good ole southern humidity was still there.

No one took the risk to ride the flow of water over the rocks this year except Jamie O’Neal and his young family. The red and yellow raft gave a quick ride down to the calm water area where everyone enjoyed the sand, splashing and a quick cool off, even the dogs.

The stakes were higher this year for the first duck over the finish line: $500.

The lucky number was 70 and Jim Bob Campbell was the owner, a resident of Mocksville.

Good Shepard Episcopal was second place winner of $250 and third place was Jerrine Peeler wining $100.

In total there were approximately 350 tickets sold. Thank you to all helped raise money to keep the park clean, safe and remain open.
