“According to Kara Lambourn, president, Kiwanis Club of Lapeer, while they know “for sure” that they’ll be able to hold the actual race, it’s unclear whether live spectators will be allowed to gather at Cramton Park for the big event. Along with the race itself, last year’s debut Rubber Duck Dash also included a number of festival elements, including games, a dunk tank and a “duck-orating” contest, which saw participants decorate a rubber duck to be judged by attendees. Lambourn said the “duck-orating” contest will also be held, regardless of a limit on gathering size.”

“Kara Lambourn, president of the Kiwanis Club of Lapeer, said that Watson, a fellow Kiwanian, knew the club was looking for a way to stay connected and “continue the good work” it does for the community. “We are very limited with what we are able to do right now in the community, so an initiative like this was a perfect match,” she said. “Helping kids grow and succeed is at the heart of everything we do.” Lambourn said the club is “grateful” for the chance to lend support to something as important as fostering reading skills. “I think it’s important that we all work together as a community to offer any sort of remote learning assistance we can during this time.”
