Llama Club addresses Kiwanis

Abby Ellenburg and Delanie Melton spoke to Kiwanis about their Llama Club and 4-H projects.  The club lost twenty-three alpacas in a fire that burnt down the Melton’s barn.  Animals from all over the Midwest were donated to get the club started again.  Some animals had to be purchased.  Purdue University Vet School gelded the males donated at no cost.  The club will have enough animals to show for the 2012 season thanks to the generosity of the community. 
The club needs halters, leads, brushes and food.   To raise money for this the club is planning an Italian dinner at the fairgrounds from 4 to 7 p.m. on May 6.
