Duck Race to raise money for pool


Donations also accepted for firefighters

TONASKET – The committee working to rebuild the Tonasket Swimming Pool is sponsoring a Duck Race at History Park on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 3:30 p.m.

The ducks will be numbered and dumped in the water all together and float down to the boat launch at the soccer fields. The first duck to cross the finish line wins!

When you buy your entry, you will get a number that corresponds to a duck. First prize is $100 and the first one to get to jump in the new pool; second prize is $50 and the second one into the pool; third prize is $25 and the third one in the pool.

Buy your duck for $5 at one of the following locations: The Split End; It’s Still Good; Lee Franks; Tonasket Interiors; Upper Valley Realty; OK Chevrolet; and the Tonasket Farmer’s Market.

Due to the fires around the area, if you would like your donation to go to fire victims rather than the pool, please indicate that when you purchase your duck. We can do a 50/50 split as well. Our thoughts go out to all those who have had losses due to the fires.
