Duck Derby Set For October 11th

 

The Firequacker 2015 Duck Derby will swimm off October 11 during the First Fork Festival at Sinnemahoning State Park.   “This year Seneca Resources Corporation will match the money raised through duck adoptions and donations up to $2,500.00,” explained Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Johns Solak.  The first opportunity to adopt a duck will be Saturday August 30 at Olivetts Shur Fine.  The price remains the same $2.00 for one or a 6 quack for $10.00.

 

“This year the fourth of July is the first Saturday of July and normally that is the night of fireworks, but because the pyro technician has a list of July 4 commitments Cameron County will blast off Friday July 3,” according to Johns Solak.  The committee is hoping to raise at least $7,000.00 this year.  “Having Seneca Resources Corporation offer to help us will make reaching that goal more attainable,”  Johns Solak continued.

 

Seneca Resources Corporation, the exploration and production segment of National Fuel Gas Company, explores for, develops, and purchases natural gas and oil reserves in California and Appalachia. Additional information about Seneca and National Fuel Gas Company is available at http://www.nationalfuelgas.com

 

The winning duck holder will receive $100.00, second place will take home $75.00 and third place will be awarded $50.00.  Ducks are also for sale at businesses displaying a red white and blue duck derby sign.
