Willy McDonald Duck Carving Fundraiser

Willy and Diane McDonald have donated this fabulous Wood Duck carving for auction at the June 23, 2018 Greater Wall Lake Association’s Annual Member’s Meeting.

After months of work, Willy just completed this duck carving.  This project is a special gift to the Greater Wall Lake Association.


All proceeds from this auction will go to the Greater Wall Lake Association's Preservation Fund at the Barry Community Foundation.

Willy's Wood Duck carving will be on display at the upcoming June 23, 2018 GWLA Member's Annual Meeting.  It will be auctioned off at this meeting and the lucky winner will be able to take it home.

It is suggested that anyone that is thinking about donating to the GWLA Preservation Fund have fun bidding up to the amount that they plan to donate, and then if they win they get the decoy as a bonus for there donation!

This is an exceptional Wood Duck carving and Willy has worked for many months on this project.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a Willy McDonald Wood Duck carving, and help the GWLA with a tax-deductible donation.

Thank you Willy and Diane!
