Beginning in 2014, Duckfest has provided waterfowl hunters from around the region a unique event catered to their passion for the outdoors and hunting. Steered by a committee made of passionate local business professionals and leaders, Duckfest has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity since its inception.
In 2017, Duckfest became a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit, further solidifying its place as an established, growing event.

The Joshua Chamberlain Society
The Joshua Chamberlain Society's mission is providing long-term support to veterans from the local area who have sustained permanent combat injuries fighting the long war on terror for our nation, and to also provide long-term support to the children of veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice in our service. Our unique mission is that we adopt, in the truest meaning of that word, these veterans or the family of these deceased veterans, and commit to provide support for the long term.
At Emmaus, we know that people with developmental disabilities want to be independent.
In order to do that, they need a community that embraces their unique abilities.
For over 125 years, as a faith-based organization, we have provided quality services, caring for the whole person for their whole life.
The problem is that services for people with disabilities are underfunded and understaffed.
We believe everyone deserves the resources to live independently.
