Fifth Annual Business Decoy Decorating Challenge – And the Winner is…


by Rotary Club Duck Decoy Committee

The Fifth Annual Business Decoy Decorating Challenge, organized by the Rotary Club of Kemptville, has wrapped up another successful year. President Nancy Miller-McKenzie and the Decoy Committee want to extend a huge thank you to all the businesses who contributed to this event. This year’s entries were wonderful, and thanks to Frank Hoffman and his staff at our local Canadian Tire store, many people viewed the decoy display and voted on their favourite duck. The ballots have been tabulated, and the winner of this year’s event is Mr. Mozzarella!

The ballots revealed a tie between the ducks from Hulse, Playfair and McGarry and Fast Eddie’s for second place. The ‘Games of Thrones’ inspired duck from Popeye’s Supplements placed third. The duck from the Kemptville Denture Clinic earned honourable mention.

Congratulations to you all! Well done to all the entries; they made a very colourful float in the Rotary Canada Day parade.

The ducks are beginning their migration back to their respective owners.
