Spring Lane Ranch was pleased to sponsor a favorite local event in our community of Lakeland, FL, the Annual Swan Derby benefiting Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine held in April. This fundraising event features live music, great food, and of course the races comprised of fast pedaling Swan Boat teams maneuvering their craft around our large Lake Mirror. Our jockeys, Betsy McHugh and Alex Zapata, kept the crowd on the edge of our seats as they maintained a close second in our swan, “I’m Not A Duck,” throughout the race. It was a photo finish, and Betsy and Alex came in a very respectable third place when the team in fourth place throughout the race had a burst of energy at the finish line. Well done Betsy and Alex. Next year we may have two swans as everyone had so much fun.
