NEWPORT, VT - The Newport Rotary Club held its annual Duck Regatta in Gardner Park under cold and rainy skies Sunday.
Lapierre and Sons’ duck came in first and won $1,000. Pierre Legacy won $500, Bob Bigelow won $300, Danielle Carpenter won $200 and Frank Chaput won $100. Bill Gardyne and Alan Dauphin braved the nasty weather to fish hundreds of plastic ducks out of the Clyde River.
The official tally wasn't available as of press time.
