The annual VVA Beaver County, PA, Chapter 862 Duck Race took place in August during the Hookstown Fair.
Chapter members sold more than two thousand $5 tickets, and two thousand rubber ducks sailed down the temporarily flooded Hookstown Creek. The first duck to reach the end of the creek won its owner $1, 000. An additional $1, 400 in prize money was awarded.
The balance will be applied to veterans’ projects. Over the years, the Chapter 862 Duck Race has raised more than $110, 000 for veterans.
