Happy Birthday Rubber Duck!
The residents in our Oshkosh senior community gathered to pay tribute and to help celebrate the birthday of Rubber Duck. It was National Rubber Ducky Day!
In 1970, Jim Henson performed the song “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street, and the rubber duck bath toy has been an iconic American symbol ever since. Rubber ducks have been around since the rise of the rubber industry in the late 1800s, but no one knows their exact origin. For the residents at Azura Memory of Oshkosh, it was a day filled with lots of fun activities from floating rubber ducks in a pool of soap filled water, to joining voices together to sing happy birthday to our friend, “Rubber Duck”. They shared stories of raising their own children and using a rubber duck to provide comfort to them and shared how it would make their children laugh. The day was filled with a lot of fun, laughter and great memories of a time true tradition. “Rubber Duckie, thanks for the memories!”
