Campbell River Daybreak Rotary is again holding its first Duck Dip as a major community fundraiser.

The funds raised through the annual day are allocated for projects within Campbell River.

This year in partnership with the City of Campbell River, Daybreak Rotary has made some significant changes to what used to be the Duck Race on the Campbell River.

Now it is a  ‘family-oriented’ day being held at Centennial Park on Sunday, Aug. 26 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Featured activities that appeal to younger children – hockey shoot, story time, fish pond, petting zoo, face painting, Bouncearama,  free family swim, etc. – will be provided. Then people can watch as blindfolded dippers scoop this year’s ‘lucky ducks’ from the their dunking in Centennial Pool. There will be great music and food during this event.

In its 25 years as a local service club, Daybreak Rotary has built the Maritime Heritage Centre and more recently contributed to the creation of Hillcrest House.

Discovery Pier lights, Youth and Seniors Partnership Project,  an annual Christmas family lunch for single parents, the playground at the Tyee Spit, the hospital gardens are just a few examples of the imprint Rotarians hope to leave each year in the community.

This year’s major goal will be completion of the Waterpark which is under construction behind the Sportsplex.
