Boscobel Lions suspend Duck Races and other fundraisers
Duck Races
SANDERS CREEK has been the traditional location of the Boscobel Lions Duck Races benefit for years, but recent flooding has resulted in the event being converted to the Duck Raffle in recent years. Now, with the threat of COVID-19, the Lions has made the difficult decision to cancel the raffle this year as well.

BOSCOBEL - The Boscobel Lion's club has a long tradition of service to the Boscobel area. We sponsor scholarships to seniors, acknowledge students for leadership and character through student of the month.  We give monetary donations to the food pantry, Paul Brandt School Forest, Police K-9, and public library to name just a few. We also sponsor the annual Easter egg hunt in Kronshage Park, assist at the local blood drives,  deliver groceries to homebound individuals and maintain a flower garden at depot Park. We pay for glasses for those individuals in financial need. This is not a complete list, but is meant to make people aware of things we do. 

In order to support people and organizations as we do, fundraising is necessary. Annual fundraisers include: St. Patrick’s Day raffle, Dick Thompson golf outing at Fennimore Golf Course, selling pecans and sponsoring the Duck raffle. 

For 24 years it was the Duck relays and it was held at Sander's Creek.  People would buy a ticket for a numbered rubber duck. The ducks were started at the Bluff Street bridge and counted at the Superior Street portion. Significant flooding in the past years undercut the banks and ducks were extremely difficult to find So, last year the Duck races has become Duck raffles. In this time of Covid-19, social distancing has made fundraising difficult. So the decision was made to not hold the Duck raffle this year. Boscobel Area Lion’s club is very thankful for everyone who has financially supported our fundraising efforts.
