On the Waterfront

Lindsay Park Saturday June 3rd - Be There!

The Manawa PB Quackers Duck Race and Family Fun Day will be Saturday June 3rd at Lindsay Park from 10am to 2pm. This first time event is a mega fund raiser for the Manawa area Project Backpack program that provides healthy food backpacks for area families on week-ends during the school year. The flagship event is the Duck Races that will be held on the Little Wolf River that runs along the park. This event also includes music, concessions, vendors, games and sports tournaments. All of the proceeds for the event will be used to support Project Backpack for the 2017-2018 school year. The musical entertainment includes Children's Performer David Landau (sponsored by the Library - starts at 11am) and area favorites Megan Pethke and Jeanne Bauer. Ducks are available for sale all over town, including here at the Library, for $5.00 apiece. That's a good price considering first prize is $1,000! We hope you have your calendars marked for this great event that supports a good cause. For more information contact Saundra Coyle at manawapbteam@gmail.com.
