The Sheriff's Animal Farm will be open this Sunday July 28th, between 1 - 3 p.m. A special guest will be on hand at the farm. Author Peter Parente, who wrote the “Peeper and Friends” children’s book series will be at the farm for a book signing. If you already have one of his books, bring it along; if you don’t, the books are on sale at the farm for $10 each with proceeds benefiting the Sheriff’s office Animal Farm.
