The City of Lodi will be celebrating Susie the Duck Day in a different style this year.
On Saturday, Aug. 8, there will be no festival, parade or duck races. Instead, area business, with the help of the Lodi and Lake Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, will be putting together special deals that will be available for one day only.
It encourages the public to shop, eat and play at their leisure, while also helping and supporting area business.
According to the Chamber of Commerce, the purpose of the one-day celebration this year is “to provide our community and surrounding communities with a day of fun and to raise support for our business community.”
There’s also the hope that this year’s version of the annual celebration will jumpstart “the road to recovery from the recent pandemic.”
One way to help the cause this year is through the purchase of a yard sign to promote Susie the Duck Day and help raise funds for local businesses that were negatively impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. One sign costs $10, but for $25, you can receive a yard sign and one entry into a raffle. All proceeds will be given back into the Lodi & Lake Wisconsin Business Community.
For more information and to purchase yard signs, go to www.lodilkaewisconsin.org and click on the ‘Events’ tab to access the Susie the Duck Day page. You may also visit the Lodi and Lake Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page.
