Tickets for the prizes are now on sale for $5.00 each and only 2,700 tickets will be sold.

The race is set for Saturday, May 28 at 2:00 p.m. sharp, when 2,700 ducks will be dropped into the Grand River by Grand Valley Crane Rentals and the two $1,000 winners of cash sponsored by Grand Valley Wind Farms and Orica Canada will be the first and second ducks entering into the Lions chutes at Hereward Park.

Tickets will be available at the Orangeville Lions Home and Garden Show, to be held at the Orangeville Fairgrounds April 1 to 3, as well as from many merchants in Grand Valley and Orangeville.

The Grand Valley Lions will also host their annual Community Breakfast, from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Community Centre and the Grand Valley Horticultural Society will have their annual plant sale on Amaranth Street East starting at 8 am.

Numerous garage sales in Grand valley and area plus the Anglican Church will have their Spaghetti supper from 5 to 7 at the church.
