Back page: Winner of rubber duck race can dine anywhere in the world

HARVARD, Mass. — A rotary club in a small Massachusetts town is gearing up for its annual rubber ducky race in which the winner’s prize is a free dinner for two anywhere in the world.

The Boston Globe reports that the winner of Harvard’s Ducky Wucky River Race will receive free airfare, a two-night stay at a hotel and the fancy dinner.

The Ayer Rotary Club will kick off the festivities on May 7, when a construction vehicle will dump thousands of numbered ducks into the Nashua River to float downstream.

Last year’s champion dined in Venice, Italy. Rotary member Jason Kauppi says past winners have traveled as far as Paris, Tokyo and Australia.

The event finishes off the Apple Blossom Festival in Harvard, a town of 6,000 residents.
