Adoption of the carousel animals is going well! As of Friday, Aug. 9, 22 of the 29 animals and benches have been adopted. This means that only seven more of the animals remain available. They have been adopted to honor anniversaries, grandchildren, birthdays and more. Folks are having fun checking out the animals and choosing the one that is perfect for them.

Adoption forms can be picked up at the carousel and at the GCC office. There is also a chart at each location so you can see which animals have already been adopted. The funding from this campaign will be instrumental in doing the "touch up" that all of the animals/benches so desperately need. So, if you are thinking about honoring someone special in this unique way, you need to hurry! Make your choice and adopt your animal while there is still time, and be part of the fun to keep our carousel looking good for another 30 years.
