PORT ANGELES: Rubber ducks ready to race


Every dollar invested in the Great Olympic Duck Derby is apparently worth its weight in rubber ducks.

The Olympic Memorial Hospital Foundation proved that Wednesday when it announced $134,835 was raised last year to purchase non-budgeted equipment for Olympic Memorial Hospital.

In what has become a tradition, the foundation’s president and executive director stood before Olympic Medical Center commissioners to document the residuals from the foundation’s annual fund-raising efforts, including the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby — the major source of the foundation’s contributions to the hospital.

The 2001 event, scheduled for noon Sunday, is expected to keep the tradition afloat.
