Salute to all who supported duck race event
The Alzheimer’s Association, Rock River Branch extends its thanks to participants in this year’s Great Duck Race on the Rock River. The race helped raise vital funds for the branch’s programs and services.
Because the Rock River was dangerously low over the weekend and had no current, the ducks did not launch. Instead, Petty Officer First Class Kevin Fahlund, serving as master of arms assigned to the USS Ronald Reagan nuclear aircraft carrier, drew the winners in front of the Reagan statue in Dixon. Kevin and his wife, Susan, and daughter, Reagan, were in town from California specifically to join in the Reagan Day festivities honoring the former president.
The winners are: first place ($1,000), Bob Oncken of Milledgeville; second place ($250), Clifford Rugh, of Dixon; third place ($100), Matt Hermes, of Heartland Reality in Dixon; and fourth place ($50), D.L. Hughes Sr. of Savanna.
