This annual fundraiser provides the vital funds necessary to support this program and provide much needed service dogs to Veterans.

Admission is $10; leashed dogs welcome.
The Ayer Rotary Club will build wheelchair ramps for people in our community who need a ramp but are unable to afford one on their own. The Club is currently accepting applications from area residents. For more information, or to apply, please contact Patricia Thorpe at 978-339-3419, or via email pattythorpe@live.com.  
 
With proceeds from last year's Ducky Wucky River Race, the Ayer Rotary Club recently gave dictionaries as a personal gift to every third-grade student at the Page Hilltop School in Ayer.
 
 
Third-grade students at the Page Hilltop Elementary School received personalized dictionaries from the Ayer Rotary Club during a recent class assembly, just one example of public service funded by the club's annual Ducky Wucky River Race.  Inscribed with each child’s name, the dictionaries are a gift meant to help students improve their communications skills and encourage them to excel in school.
 
“We are excited to provide a gift to each third grader to show them the Ayer Rotary Club and the entire community support their education and want them to succeed in school.  We hope this will be the first year of a new annual tradition, and we thank the many individuals and sponsors who donate generously to support the community service work of the Ayer Rotary Club,” said Michael Phelan, the club’s president for 2015-16.
