The Susquehanna Hose Company dropped its duck at midnight on the Havre de Grace Middle School campus to signify the new year, and crowds gathered despite the chill—temperatures were in the twenties.

The duck was green in 2014 to recognize childhood cancer, according to Duck Drop Committee Chair Ed Grainger, who said that the Susquehanna Hose Company was hosting an event on March 15 at Bill Bateman's for the cause.

In 2013, the duck was pink to raise breast cancer awareness.
