To the editor:
Regarding your comments in the Sun Post, July 4 edition, about the mystery as to how Duk Duk Daze got its name: I can solve that mystery.
A friend of mine entered the contest and submitted the name Duk Duk Daze as a joke because of all of the ducks in what was then called Northwood Pond. Yes, she was an adult, but not a “boring old” adult as claimed, a young mother of two sons. So, it’s possible that she may have entered the contest with her son’s name.
I won’t name her to respect her privacy but I distinctly remember her laughing about the silly name she submitted that won the contest!
