2013 Annual Meeting and Duck Race!

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

The 2013 Friends of the Tunbridge World’s Fair Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2013. We will meet in the Pavilion building on the Fairgrounds this year.
A potluck luncheon will be served at 11:30 am with beverages provided. Please bring a guest, a place setting, and a dish to share.
The business meeting will start at 12:30 pm and is open to all, but dues must be current to vote. Agenda includes Officers’ reports, Board elections and Project updates. Board seats are available, so bring your ideas!
Our third annual Duck Race will begin at 1:30 pm with the “launching” of the ducks in the First Branch at the Mill Bridge. The finish line will be on the Fairgrounds near the ox barns. There will be cash prizes of $250, $100, and $75, as well as many wonderful donated gifts that will awarded to the first several ducks to cross the finish line. Funds will be used for the handicapped shuttle and the restoration of the chimney in the Log Cabin on Antiques Hill. We wish to thank the Royalton Civic Club’s generous donation in 2011 which allows us to own the ducks and institute this annual event.
Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 and can be purchased from any Friends of the Tunbridge Fair Board member.
