SedgeunkeDUCK Regatta

On Saturday, July 15, the first ever SedgeukneDUCK Regatta was held to benefit the Orrington Historical Society's missions. Bright yellow rubber duckies were sponsored for just $10 each. The little critters raced in the Sedgeunkedunk Stream from the dam to the Johnson Mill Road tunnel to the finish line. Fans stayed for burgers and hotdogs cooked on Bob's grill! Our neighbors in the Brewer Wastewater Treatment Plant  assisted us with this fun and informative event. All proceeds were donated to the Orrington Historical Society for the restoration of the Grange Hall.
