OAKLAND – Children dressed in their pajamas will welcome baby lambs, goats, calves and other newborn animals also wearing pajamas, on May 7 at the ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower & PJ Party at Hart-to-Hart Farm & Education Center in Albion.
Families attending the free event are asked to bring pet food and items to donate to Humane Society Waterville Area in memory of Cassidy, who was a longtime shelter volunteer.
There will be two sessions, 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 2 p.m., with limited capacity of 80 children per session. Registration is required at shineoncass.org or hart2hartfarm.org.
The annual event features educational stations that include learning how to milk a cow, fetching eggs from the chicken coop, spinning lamb’s wool, and participation in goat yoga! Children will be able to hold, and have photos taken with, the newborn baby animals.
Hart-to-Hart Farm & Education Center is a family-owned and operated organic dairy farm that offers educational programs for children, adults and families. The ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower is held each year in honor of Cassidy Charette, an Oakland teen who died in a hayride accident in 2014, and was a summer camper at Hart-to-Hart Farm.
