The winner of the first annual “Great 421 Duck Race” was Duck No. 127, adopted by Lou Anna Philpot, of Watts Creek. Harlan 20/20 Community Development Foundation presented Philpot with the first place prize of $400 cash. Pictured is Harlan 20/20 Secretary Ron Frazier releasing the ducks from the bridge at Walmart and Don’s Super Saver in Harlan.
In order to catch the ducks, volunteer Derrick Gross, of Rosspoint, right and Harlan 20/20 “Great 421 Duck Race” coordinator Jim Helton waded into the Cumberland River with nets. Helton can be seen catching the first duck and winner of the race.
