Patoka 2000 Duck Race slated for JulyJune 12, 2020
JASPER — The annual Patoka 2000 Duck Race has been rescheduled for 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 9, at the Jasper Public Pool.
The duck race is a fundraiser that supports the efforts of Patoka 2000, a beautification group of the Jasper Chamber of Commerce that works hard throughout the year to clean up and beautify the Patoka River entryway into Jasper.
This group ensures that the plants and flags on the bridge look nice, it educates folks about the proper planting and pruning of trees, it dedicates and blesses a tree each year on Arbor Day (showing good tree care), assists the Jasper Park and Recreation department with its annual tree give-away and it serves as a resource for people who might have questions regarding city beautification and trees.
To sponsor a duck for the duck race, send a check or bring cash to the Jasper Chamber of Commerce office at 302 W. Sixth St., P.O. Box 307, Jasper.
People are asked to wear a mask if hand delivering a sponsorship.
Forms and payments must be received no later than July 8.
The cost is $5 for one duck or three for $10.
The prizes for this year are: grand prize, $250 Downtown Jasper shopping spree; second, 6-foot picnic table donated by Krempp Lumber; third, $100 cash from Bob Luegers Buick GMC; fourth, $100 cash from Uebelhor Chevy Cadillac; fifth, $50 gift certificate from Olinger Diamond Center; and sixth, Jasper logo items from Jasper Engines & Transmission.
