7,036 total ducks were sold. 319 more than last year!
Interestingly, 16 FFA Chapters participated in the actual selling of ducks, but due to our on-line sales system, a total 44 chapters received duck credit.
$13,727 will be given to back to chapter as credit to participate in Oswegatchie activities.
The top 5 sellers were:
Beaver River- 988
South Lewis- 542
The Adironduck Race is important for a handful of reasons:
- Oswegatchie gets cleaned up and ready for another year.
- Funds are raised to help send kids to camp
- Funds are raised to help keep summer camp costs low.
- Past FFA members and campers get a chance to visit Oswegatchie
- The community from near and far get to have a free day of entertainment outside in the sun
- People are drawn into Lewis County and helps showcase our local area.
