This family-oriented, fun-filled event offers guests the opportunity to learn about animals not normally seen in local pet stores.

Many of our vendors allow live interactions with the pets during visits to their booth.

     

    To add to the fun, free-entry raffles are held frequently during both days of the event, offering guests the opportunity to win coveted prizes.

     

    This event, held at the Wahabi Shrine Center, offers a unique family outing suitable for all ages and for a very diverse range of enthusiasts.

    The Quisenberry Library presents the celebrated acoustic duo Hungrytown. Last July, they returned from a successful six-and-a-half-month tour of the US, UK and New Zealand, covering over 16,000 miles in the US alone. They are currently on a four-month tour of the American south and southwest.

    Vermonters Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, who make up Hungrytown, have been touring professionally for nearly 15 years. Hungrytown‘s songs and music have appeared in numerous television programs, including IFC’s Portlandia, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and Neftlix’s new comedy, Lady Dynamite; as well as various documentaries and major sporting events ranging from NASCAR to Hockey Night in Canada.

    Their third and latest album, Further West, made the top 10 on the American Folk DJ charts for two months, and at least 14 “Best of the year” lists.” Not only is this one of the best albums of 2015, it’s one of the best of the decade,” proclaimed New York Music Daily.

    CLINTON — Through a partnership with the Barksdale Reading Institute, Clinton Park Elementary is beginning an outreach program for parents of pre-kindergarten age children.

    “We are holding a series of six workshops for parents and guardians of pre-school children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2018,” said Clinton Park Principal Kelli Pope. “They will cover what children need to know and do to be ready for kindergarten, in literacy, math, and general development.”

    Pope said the workshops will include simple, daily things that parents can do with their children to help them prepare for kindergarten and to be in a classroom setting.

    A similar program was piloted last year in the Quitman and Kosciusko school districts with good outcomes. Pope applied for a Barksdale grant over the summer, and Clinton was one of 11 school districts that received the grant. The funds cover the cost of materials and door prizes for the parent academy.

    Workshops will all be held at Clinton Park Elementary School and are free to attend. Childcare will also be provided for children ages 3-10. Snacks will be served.

    “All participants will be entered to win a door prize at each session,” Pope said.

    Participants who come to all six sessions of the Parent Academy will be eligible to receive a graduation gift in April.

    For more information or to register, call Clinton Park at 601-924-5205 or register online here: https://goo.gl/forms/Bi5uS0345XK7ispu1.

     

    Parent Academy meetings will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Clinton Park on the following dates:

    –       Oct. 24

    –       Nov. 28

    –       Jan. 25
