Perfect weather..little wind, sunny and 80s

124 attendees

Many thanks to... Smiths , Gerry Olson, MC 4-H Agent for loan of cages, Wells Fargo for pulling weeds and making the

Our new garden turtle, “Shelly”.

Thanks to Coralee and Naoma for doing a great job of greeting and doing the sign up table


Many thanks to all those who brought animals—Melissa Palmer and daughter with chickens and lizard; Sandy and Sid with chickens;
