"We raised more money this year, so we're very pleased," said Smith. "I think that in succeeding years we're just going to see it grow. There are other duck derbies in the area, but I think we're pretty unique because we're at Canalside."

The money raised will go to diverse community projects. Smith said Rotary plans to continue the derby for years to come.
