Where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change.


Local authorities are pleading with the public to help put a stop to the gangs of roaming bored rubber ducks around the Comox Valley.

“For pity sake, buy a Comox Rotary Club Ducky 500 ticket,” begged James Eby as he attempted to break up a group of ducks gone wild from photocopy themselves in his store on Anderton Avenue in Comox.  “The sooner you buy a ticket, the sooner these little guys can start training.”

The Ducky 500 is the annual Canada Day extravaganza where hordes of tagged rubber ducks are let loose in the Courtenay River and the ticket holder of the winning ducks receive fabulous prizes.  Proceeds from the event are used by the Comox Rotary Club for worthy local projects.

Tickets are available from Comox Rotarians, Ducky sponsors and civic-minded businesses.
