Assumption's Sixth Annual Duck Day a Red Carpet Event

On April 12 Assumption’s sixth annual Duck Day rolled out the red carpet to welcome back the ducks that call the college home from April to November. The annual event raised more than $500.00 for “Duck Crossing” signs, which will be placed around the pond to ensure the safety of Assumption’s feathered friends in their travels.

More than 200 children from Flagg St. and Nelson Place elementary schools sported duck caps as they cheered the return of the ducks. Assumption mascot Pierre the Greyhound and Joey the Duck were, of course, in attendance, as well for the gala event. The Student Activities office, sponsor of Duck Day, provided duck umbrellas and duck whistles to the children, as well as cupcakes and cookies to decorate.
