Kiwanis duck contest underway

OWOSSO — The Shiawassee-Owosso (morning) Kiwanis Club is accepting ballots for its 15th annual Executive Duck Derby.

Businesses purchased large rubber ducks and decorated them to reflect their products or services. All ducks are on display in the windows of the Nail Boutique on South Washington Street through Friday.

Judging for the best duck will take place with three “celebrity” judges and public votes and trophies will be awarded.

Proceeds from the derby go to provide summer supplies for the Bentley Bright Beginnings preschool students. Kiwanis members fill cloth totes printed by Doug Edwards (Edwards Sign and Screen Printing) with supplies for educational activities for the purpose of parents helping their children retain the skills learned during the school year.

Last year’s winning duck was decorated by Wells Fargo Advisors.

The Shiawassee-Owosso Kiwanis Club, whose mission is to serve and benefit children and our community, meets at 7:11 a.m. Wednesdays at the Comstock Hotel and Conference Center and is accepting membership applications.
