The Lucky Longneck Llama
4-H Club participated in the 2005 Multiple Sclerosis Walk for a
Cure in Salem, Oregon on April 16th. Our local paper included
a note about our team in their
write-up of the event.
Club Service. The club
participated with the
Koenig's in the 2005 MS
Walk for a Cure. This year the Koenig's and some club members
groomed five animals then walked in the Multiple Sclerosis Walk on
April 16th in Salem, Oregon. The walk went very smoothly, and
five llamas on the sidewalks of downtown Salem caused many drivers
to do double-takes! Fortunately, in spite of all the
"rubber-necking," there were no auto accidents! After the walk we
hung out in Riverfront park and visited with other participants.
Here are some pictures from the event.
The weather was not great, but
fortunately, it only rained lightly once during the walk.
On the grass near the Carousel in Riverfront Park (above), the
llamas gave some pets and, in some cases, kisses - see below.
If you walk by the Capital building (left) with your llama,
be sure to have your camera to record the event!
It's Destini (the
llama in the picture to the left)
interacts with some participants at the event.
Gold Sparkle (the llama in the picture to the right) says,
"But all I want is to kiss your forehead...," her young friend is
not so sure if he really wants a llama kiss!
