The “Running of the Ducks” was “a success” on Saturday, according to Columbia Mayor Pamela Hoots. The City of Columbia extended its appreciation to all who purchased ducks, donated prizes, attended the event, and helped.
The DeMolay youth group helped with the organization of the ducks in the creek. The group included: Mason Grant, Charlie Grant, Brandon Stargel, Tyler Murphy, Zachary Burton, and Alexander Farrar. They are under the direction of Paul Smith and Curtis Grant.
All proceeds will be going to improve the Paddle Trail for Columbia’s Trail Town. They would like to thank the following for the donation of prizes for the event:
• T.J. Health Columbia

“We would like to extend our thanks to Tiffany Collins and Steven Baker for coordinating this event for our community,” Hoots said.
