Join us this September 10th as the Grapevine Rotary Club hosts the 3rd Annual Rubber Duck Race in the Lazy River at The REC of Grapevine.
Thousands of free-spirited yellow rubber ducks will be dropped into The REC Lazy River where they will race to see who is the fastest.
The event will take place from 5-7pm at The REC of Grapevine in fair or Fowl weather!
The winning Duck will earn $1,000, second place wins $500 and third place wins $250.
100% of all proceeds support the Grapevine Rotary Club community programs, such as scholarships for high school seniors, Computers for Kids, Special Olympics, RYLA, Feed Our Kid and American Flags on Main Street.
Every year, Grapevine Rotary Club awards as many scholarships as possible to qualified graduating senior applicants. The impact of these awards for the students in our areas is amazing. In April, we awarded 16 of these scholarships in the amount of $1500 each from the proceeds of our 2019 Duck Race.
All of the ducks are churning up the water to get back in their best racing form after eating too much during quarantine (except for Chuck, who is lounging around the pool. He’s “supervising”).

Here’s hoping your duck wins!

Lieutenant Colonel Don Houk (USAFR) Ret. is scheduled to perform his General James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle Impersonation on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd at Golfcrest Country Club, beginning at 12:00 noon.
Lt. Col. Don Houk (USAFR) Ret., has been offering a first-person impersonation of General Doolittle’s life and accomplishments, particularly the Raid on Tokyo, for over four years. Don developed the program with the support of four of the Doolittle Raiders: Lt. Col. Dick Cole, Doolittle’s co-pilot on the Raid, C.V. Glines, author of Doolittle’s biography, Lt. Col. Edward Saylor, and SSGT David Thatcher. With the passing of most of the Raiders, Don’s presentation is even more important today for students and adults alike.
James Harold “Jimmy” Doolittle was an American aviation pioneer. He served as an officer in the United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War and earned the Medal of Honor for his valor and leadership as commander of the famous surprise Doolittle Raid on Tokyo Japan.
Lt. Col. Don Houk’s presentation is performed in full World War II Army Air uniform. He is a seasoned performer who lives in the Houston-Galveston area.
