DANIELSON — The Annual Rubber Duckie Race has been one of The Arc Quinebaug Valley’s major fund-raising events for over 20 years. This year, the Putnam Business Association and The Arc QV decided to transition the race to the coordination of the PBA, with help from The Arc.
As always, the Rubber Duckie fund-raiser will be held in conjunction with Putnam’s Car Cruise Aug. 18.
The Arc Quinebaug Valley and The Arc New London County will complete its merger July 1 as Arc Eastern Connecticut.
Kathleen Stauffer, CEO of The Arc New London County and leader of the merged agency, said: “We were extremely excited when the Putnam Business Association approached the agency and was eager to take on the Rubber Duckie Race,” said Stauffer. “Since The Arc QV has been running the event for so long, it was natural that we’d want to make sure this popular event continued, and we’ll still be assisting the PBA in any way we can to make sure that all those little yellow ducks are racing down the river in August.”
