Help 4-H, Help Kids, Help Chicks, Help CLUCK

CLUCK has received a request from Janie Besselman who will be helping Robert Kluson with the Small Animal Tent  during the Sarasota County Fair.  Last year CLUCK helped staff the tent and it was a great experience for all--excited kids, curious teens, beautiful chickens and baby chicks. (And, if it was like last year, volunteering gets you in the Fair for free.) What I like to do is help out for a couple of two hour shifts and then enjoy the fair.

Sarasota County Fair Dates    March 16th thru March 25th  
Fridays – 2 to 11 pm*
                                                                                                                       M-Thur    2 to 10 pm*
                                                                                                                        Saturday 12 to 11 pm*
                                                                                                                        Sunday    12 to 10 pm*

*Note these are the times that the Fair is open to the public. 

Some volunteer slots may already be filled, so contact Janie
at 941-232-8420 or Robert at 941-232-3090 to see what is still available.   

This is just another way local CLUCK can promote successful, responsible chicken ownership in Sarasota County.
