Jack Bruner writes: Your readers will be interested in learning that The Alpaca Ranchers of the Northwest (AROW) is hosting a fun family event for the public. This is the second annual farm days event that AROW has hosted and is held in conjunction with the Alpaca Owners Association National Farm days.
This was a big hit last year where a lot of families had a lot of fun. This year will have even more activities with an emphasis on youth. We feature hands-on interaction with alpacas, information and vendor booths, an alpaca pen sale with lots of paca people around to talk to. Kids will get a chance to feed, harness and lead these amazing critters in an obstacle course.
The event is in Toledo at “Lone Tree Alpaca Ranch”, 140 Carol Lin Drive on Sept. 24 from 10:00 to 5:00. Everything is free including snacks and a door prize.
Currently AROW boasts nearly 20 members including Lone Tree Alpaca Ranch. Lone Tree Alpacas website link here. AROW website link here.
