To the editor:

A standing ovation to all the 80+ volunteers who worked so diligently and the 160+ business and individual donors who contributed so generously to make this year's Great Calusa Rubber Duck Race another huge success! We appreciate the time our vendors, Pine Island Tropicals, SOS Sweeney Soaps & Gifts, Cosas FMB, Marty Kendall and Tim Higgins, took to come out and join us in our annual Duck Race celebration.

A special thanks to Heron Air Conditioning, Mango Tango Tropicals, Century 21 Team Shevlin, Stearns Custom Builders, Tow Boat U.S, CW Fudge Factory, Sutton & Associates Insurance and Alden Pines Country Club for their sponsorship of the 2018 Duck Race T-shirts. Owners and staff of Low Key Tiki receive an extra round of applause for their community spirit, support and hustle while providing great food and outstanding service on Duck Day!

It truly takes a community to raise the money each year to acquire, manage and preserve the lands on this island that have been entrusted to the care of the Calusa Land Trust and Preserve.

And a final salute and heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful Pine Islanders, snowbirds and visitors who so enthusiastically supported the Calusa Land Trust by buying Duck Race tickets, Super Duck tickets, shirts, hats and bidding on our many lovely items at the silent auction and live auction.

What a race! What a day! What a wonderful, giving community we live in this island paradise we all call home!

Hope to see y'all next year!
