Buy a duck and change the world!
This year’s “Duck Pluck” will take place on May 1, 2021, virtually. The winning ducks will be plucked out of PDG Michelle Bell’s hot tub during the District Conference!
Here’s how it works:
1. Each club and individuals from that club will be represented by a single duck in the race.
2. The first three ducks to be plucked will be the winners. Once the winning three clubs have been
determined a computer pick at random will occur to choose one winner of a Paul Harris Fellow
designation for each of the three winning clubs.
3. Each club participating in the race will receive Foundation Paul Harris Fellow points for the full
amount of dollars contributed by the club through the purchase of ducks.
Ducks are $5 each and checks can be made payable to The Rotary Foundation and mailed to (must be mailed to arrive by April 20, 2021):

Rotary Opens Opportunities
Rotary is not just a club you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. It opens opportunities to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree. It opens opportunities for you to live a richer, more meaningful life, with friends around the world, based on our core values. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
The 2020-2021 theme is: Rotary Opens Opportunities.
