The Mad River Rotary Duck Race is ON!!

Have fun and support Rotary's charitable work in The Valley and beyond by adopting a duck. Ticket sales are completely online this year, keeping Rotarians and our supporters safe. On September 6th at 3:00 PM we'll dump about 4,000 ducks into the Mad River. The first five finishers win cash prizes. First place wins $1,000! Please visit to adopt a duck (or several!). Tickets start at $6. Benefactors able to donate $500 will receive special recognition when race results are announced. Good luck!!!
Welcome to our club

We are the Mad River Valley Rotary Club with over 50 members. We are your neighbors, friends, and business acquaintances. We are young, old, men, and women who volunteer our time to make the Mad River Valley a better place to live. 

As a chapter of Rotary International, we aspire to make a difference right here in the Mad River Valley and beyond. Our commitment is to community service, building friendships, and developing leaders. Our international exchange program cultivates understanding beyond Vermont and is a life changing experience for those who participate.

All that we say, think and do is based on the four-way test:

  • Is it the truth;
  • Is it fair to all concerned;
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships;
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Through fundraisers, raffles and community events we support local organizations and global projects providing a broad range of services, from assistance for those in need, to arts and culture.

We invite you to attend a weekly meeting to learn more about Rotary and how you can help the community in which we live.
