Duck Race fundraiser: kids’ toys for l’EntourElle

Several hundred rubberized waterfowl were let loose in the Coulonge River on Sunday to raise money for the local women’s shelter L’EntourElle. Prizes were awarded to the first several ducks to pass under the bridge.
The first heat of ducks to ride the Coulonge River had to be dragged out of the water with a net after they dodged the funnel that was created for them under the Pont Blanc in Mansfield.

On Sunday, residents of Fort Coulonge and Mansfield gathered at the bridge across the Coulonge River for the start of a new tradition.
The first duck race in support of local women’s shelter L’EntourElle was a success, selling around 750 tickets on rubber ducks to float down the river.
