2019 Dewey Duck Derby Winners & Event Information

 It was a close race for 3 & 4th places, but the 1st place duck was far ahead of the rest of the pack.  That was one determined duck!  Our 1st place duck was # 133 owned by Jennifer Miller of Dewey.  Jennifer must be a good trainer, since another of her flock, duck #307, came in 2nd place.  Fighting for 3rd place was duck #7 racing under the name of Nicklas Deutsch.  The 4th place duck was #99 owned by Stephanie Colclasure.  

Thank you to everyone who bought ducks.  That money will go into the 2020 4th of July celebration.  The 4th of July celebration is put on every year by the Dewey Civic Association (with support of the City of Dewey).  This is an all- volunteer group of people from Dewey and the surrounding area who support Dewey and want the city to have awesome events.  The Dewey Civic Association also puts on Dewey's Christmas parade.

If you got a Dewey fan at the 4th of July celebration, or you pick one up later at different stores and events, the individuals and businesses listed on the fan have donated money to purchase the fireworks, pay the band, buy the watermelon that is given away free, and any other expenses involved in Dewey's 4th celebration.  We thank them for their support, and thank them for being a Dewey Fan!

Free face painting for kids (and adults) has been sponsored by Davis Family Funeral Home Dewey & Walker Brown Chapels for several years.  Many thanks to them (and their volunteer painters) for providing this fun experience for the kids.

The Dewey Lions Club has been the July 4th celebration's sole food vendor for many, many years.  Not only do the Lions support the 4th celebration, they also sell concessions to raise money for their various local and national giving. The Dewey Lions Club has recently taken over the former Kiwanis Park (behind the library), and, as funds allow, are refurbishing the park for everyone's future enjoyment.

The Dewey Civic Association looks forward to having everyone at the 2020 celebration!
