Perhaps the feathered flock featured at Assumption College’s annual Duck Day April 12 ordered the fowl weather, but the rain and hail sent the human spectators flying fast far from the scene. (Actually, the ducks had the same idea. Owner Dianna Markley said they were found walking home on Salisbury Street later that day, so this week she planned to take different ones to the pond for the summer.)

Gabrielle Butler, 3, below, meets the temporarily incarcerated, then freed, Swedish Blues and Khaki Campbells. With her, above, are her mother, Carleen Roy-Butler, director of Assumption’s REACH OUT Center, Ms. Markley’s daughter Emily, 9,  and her friend Grace Whittier, 9.
