Big Spring ISD Meet the Teacher night for all elementary campuses is tonight from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
The McEwen Family Aquatic Center will be overrun with ducks Saturday â€” hundreds of plastic ducks.
Not to worry, though, this friendly invasion is for a good cause â€” the Greater Big Spring Rotary Club's annual duck race will raise money for the Isaiah 58 food bank and other local charities.
And if the duck you purchase is one of those "trapped" during Saturday's race, you could win, also.
