Every year, we support the West Bay Rotary Club in their annual Duck Derby fundraiser and this year we broke the record!
On May 28, 3,500 plastic ducks (each paid for by a ticket holder) were released at the Camden Maine footbridge and traveled over the falls into the harbor where the lucky winners of big prizes happened to be the first ducks who crossed the finish line.
As president elect of the West Bay Rotary Club and owner of North Atlantic Painting, I can tell you this year, we netted over $11,000 in ticket sales. The numbers have steadily grown year after year. We had a good turnout with the public, good turnout with everybody who volunteered–it was really good.
The money is going to The Hospitality House, Meals on Wheels, the food pantries, and scholarships at the Camden Hills Regional High School. North Atlantic Painting is serious about helping our communities.
