The Harrington Hospital Auxiliary is proud to announce exciting plans for the 22nd Annual “Lucky Duck and Family Fun Day” to be held at the Westville Recreational Area in Southbridge on Sunday, April 28, 2013. This event has entertained many families throughout its twenty-two year history. It will begin at 11:00 AM and end at 2:30 PM.
Lucky Duck Day begins in the morning with The Sturbridge Lions Annual All-American River Race on the Quinebaug River. During the entire event the Harrington Hospital Auxiliary will host a variety of “Lucky Duck and Family Fun Day” activities. A variety of children’s games will be held throughout the day. Beginning at 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM, children will be invited to participate in a train ride on the grounds of the beautiful Westville Recreational Area, hosted by The Army Corps of Engineers. Other activities include a moonwalk, a two-story fun house which includes a slide, darts, a ball toss, high strikes, a basketball shootout, and face painting. In addition, The Southbridge Police Department will offer free finger-printing and photo identification for your child's safe-keeping and protection. Throughout the day, Girl Scouts from Charlton and members of the Southbridge Middle School Jo-Ann D. Robinson Honor Society will assist children with all events.
