Columbia Duck Derby was success for the community

By Tiffany Collins

The "Running of the Ducks" was a success last week. The City of Columbia would like to extend their appreciation to all who purchased ducks, donated prizes, attended the event, and helped.

The DeMolay Youth Group helped with the organization of the ducks in the creek. The group was composed of Mason Grant, Charlie Grant, Brandon Stargel, Tyler Murphy, Zachary Burton, and Alexander Farrar. They are under the direction of Paul Smith and Curtis Grant.

All proceeds will be going to improve the Paddle Trail for Columbia's Trail Town.


They would like to thank the following for the donation of prizes for the event:
  • T.J. Health Columbia
  • Community Medical Services
  • Adair County Health Department
  • Community Trust
  • Bank Of Columbia
  • Walmart
  • BreAnna Coffey (balloon kit)
  • The Adair Progress
  • Jlh Custom Guitars
  • Dr. Ronald Rogers
  • Cozy Chicks
"We would like to extend our thanks to Tiffany Collins and Steven Baker for coordinating this event for our community," said Mayor Pamela Hoots.
