Holtville Woman’s Club Regatta A Huge Success
Submitted by Marcia Jennings
The Rubber Ducky Regatta of the Holtville Woman’s Club was held last Saturday, April 29, at the home of Alan and Mary Bornt of Holtville.
The event started off with President Deborah Thornburg dropping all the duckies in the moat. After the initial splash, it was going, going, GONE!
The course was pretty long, especially for such small rubber duckies, but the duckies were game. When the rubber duckies got stuck in the mud or in the vegetation running on the sides of the moat, Daniel Thornburg would come to the rescue with his kayak and his paddle.
The Holtville Woman’s Club would like to thank Alan and Mary Bornt for the generous use of their beautiful home. The setting for the regatta was perfect!
The Bornts were very accommodating hosts: hanging out during the festivities, posing for pictures, and making sure that the Woman’s Club of Holtville had everything they needed.
Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Bornt for being generous with your blessings. You are a fine example to the community!
We also thank all the people who sold and bought tickets, all the people who made the regatta come together, all the attendees, and to Joan Thornburg for being the scorekeeper. Special thanks to the decorating committee and to Charles and Bunny Thornburg for taking all the pictures.
With everyone’s help, the Woman’s Club can now afford the much needed repairs of their new ceiling. Such a huge success! Thank you!
