Ducks are $10 per entry and may be purchased at the Village Market Sept. 13-15, Sept. 20-21 and Sept. 23 between 10:30 and 2:30, and Wilton Hardware, the event’s major sponsor, on Sept. 17 from 9:30am to 1:30, or by emailing

A total of $1,200 in prizes will be awarded and proceeds benefit school’s scholarship fund and a donation to the Wilton Fire Department.
