How does the “Dip-A-Duck” work? Local Lions Club members will be selling tickets for $5 each for the fundraiser. You can buy them ath the Black Mountain-Swannanoa Chamber of Commerce 9-11 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays up to May 29. Each person buying a ticket will have their name matched with a numbered duck which will be placed in the Black Mountain Pool on May 30. Black Mountain Mayor Mike Sobol has consented to be at the pool to dip the winning ducks.
