New this year – The Clinton Guild will be sponsoring a Ducky Scavenger Hunt and other activities. Come early for ducky day on July 12, join the hunt and find the ducks hidden in the windows of the stores in Clinton. Guess how many duck candies are in the jar. Get balloons, make a duck hat, and more. Pick up your scavenger hunt sheets at the Clinton Guild table at noon on Main Street. And have a ducky of a day!
