Time left to adopt a rubber duckie for fundraising event

Thousands of rubber ducks will be filling Mill Race Park’s Round Lake on Saturday, dropped by helicopter as part of a fundraiser.

The Meridian Kiwanis Club is holding its 18th annual Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash.

Those who have adopted ducks have a chance to win cash and prizes with the top prizes being a new vehicle from Chevrolet of Columbus or $50,000 cash.

The cost to adopt a duck is $5 each, or five ducks for $20, and 30 ducks for $100. You can adopt a duck from any Kiwanis member or at Midwest Computer Solutions at 3028 State Street. You can also adopt a duck at Mill Race Park starting at 10:30 in the morning Saturday.

Money raised goes to benefit local programs for children and the Kiwanis Club. You can get more information at kducks.com.
