To celebrate this momentous occasion, HCC is going to the birds! To the ducks, actually. ;-)
There are 22 large, labeled rubber duckies hidden around the town of Harwich. Find one, bring it to the Community Center before February 5th, and you'll win a prize!
Haven't found one of the hidden ducks? You'll still have a chance to win a prize in the Center's first-ever "Duck Toss" event.
Stop by the Center and pick up a rubber duck. Decorate your duck. Put your name on it. Then bring it back to the Center on February 5th for the Duck Toss.
