Tour guides needed for exhibit: The Buttonwoods Museum is looking for volunteer tour guides to help during the Smithsonian Institute’s traveling exhibit “The Way We Worked,” which will be at the Buttonwoods Aug. 24 through Oct 6.

Tour guides must be available Tuesdays through Fridays for two-hour shifts between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Limited weekend hours are also available. No experience is necessary and training is provided. More information is available from Jan Williams at 978-374-4626 or jwilliams@haverhillhistory.org.

Rubber Duck Regatta announced: The Haverhill Rotary Club will hold its annual Rubber Duck Regatta on Sept. 7, when 10,000 rubber ducks will be dropped into the Merrimack River from the Comeau Bridge, a new location for this year’s duck drop.

One “lucky duck” will win $10,000, donated by Rockingham Toyota/Honda/Scion of Salem, N.H. This year’s Rotary Rubber Duck Regatta will be held in conjunction with the downtown River Ruckus, a festival presented by Team Haverhill that promises to bring in bigger crowds and feature even more activities than past River Ruckus events.

Haverhill Rotary and its mascot Quacky are announcing special Early Bird Pricing as follows: Quack Packs for $25 now include seven adoptions instead of six, and Quacker’s Dozens include 15 adoptions (instead of 13) for $50 and Flocks include 31 adoptions (instead of 28) for $100. For more information or to adopt ducks, visit online at www.adoptaducktoday.com.

YMCA offers Girls Basketball Camp: The Haverhill YMCA will hold a Girls Basketball Camp from Aug. 14 to Aug. 16.

The camp is from 9 a.m. to noon and is an option for girls who love the game of basketball or who are interested in getting involved in the game. Local girls basketball coaches Michelle Joubert, Beth Eddy, Shawna Mottram and Elizabeth Briggs will instruct participants in the fundamentals of basketball — dribbling, shooting and passing — along with an understanding of the game.
