Delphos Kiwanis Club host annual Duck Race 1.jpg

Ten little ducklings competed in a race at stadium park in Delphos. Before each race, people bet on the duck they thought would waddle to the win. At the end, the ducks were raffled off. The event is hosted every year by the Delphos Kiwanis Club. The money raised from it helps the community.

“This is our biggest and most important fundraiser we have throughout the year,” said Cindy Metzger, Delphos Kiwanis Club treasurer. “What it is does is it allows us to do projects and to support other non-profits in town.”
