In true water fowler fashion, the folks at CPDU tried to give the audience a feel for the marsh. Fast grass and a flock of Mojo’s for movement accented decoys, cattails and a layout blind. Pride in America and their love for Ducks Unlimited was prominently displayed by their custom Red, White and Blue DU logo T-shirts.
Putting forth the effort meant a full weekend of walking. CPDU members, family and friends entered not just one but two parades. Saturday’s parade, held in Hebron, started things off with a bang! Listening to the crowd’s comments made it evident that they didn’t waste their time building the float. Sunday’s parade, in Crown Point, also went very well and the people applauded.
The weekend was a success and Ducks Unlimited was promoted to thousands! CPDU got the message out by displaying the DU mission statement on the float and handing out nearly 1,500 fliers for their upcoming CPDU events.
The CPDU float took first place in the Hebron parade and second place in the Crown Point Parade. They also received a special trophy for creativity from the Hebron event. Another great job from the folks at Crown Point Ducks Unlimited!
