Pet Palooza Offers Week Day Fun

Tom Wyant shows a snake to some curious youngsters this week during the Pet Palooza event Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Christian Church on East Road. With the exception of the snakes, real animals were left at home in favor of stuffed animals. The Pet Palooza featured a petting zoo, games and food. The event was a chance for people to ‘get to know their neighbors all in the name of love’. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/
