The fifth annual SedgeukneDUCK Regatta will benefit the Orrington Historical Society's missions. Bright yellow rubber duckies can be sponsored for just $10 each at Bob's Kozy Korner Store AND Orrington Town Hall, starting in June. The little critters race in the Sedgeunkedunk Stream from the dam to the Johnson Mill Road tunnel to the finish line. Fans can stay for burgers and hotdogs cooked on the Kozy Korner's grill! All proceeds go to the Orrington Historical Society for the restoration of the Grange Hall.
