The Farmstead Arts Duck Race and Arts
Was a Great Success Thanks to All Who
Volunteered, Donated and Attended!
Despite storm Andrea, Saturday June 8 dawned as an ideal day for ducks and the arts! Almost 1,000 ducks were entered the Passaic River next to the Farmhouse.
Thanks to all of you who supported the race by attending, listening to the music, seeing the art and history exhibit in the farmhouse, painting a duck, and purchasing a duck chance, a piece of art or jewelry, lunch or just a bottle of water.This was a fun and important fundraiser for the Farmstead.
Proceeds from the Duck Race were used to bring art to the community and preserve the historic site, and funds from the silent art auction will be used for much needed gallery lighting in the Farmhouse.

Boy Scout Troop 351 did an amazing job catching the ducks!
