This year’s shearing events: Volunteers needed

08-01-08 Shearing Cisco Large Web viewWith our business partner, Tim, recovering from his final chemo treatment and battle with cancer, we find ourselves a bit shorthanded with this year’s shearing festivities.  But, that only gives us a reason to through a party!  Tim will be home and done with his treatments and our animals are needing their shearing in preparation for the summertime weather.  We’ll be hosting two Saturday events, these first two Saturdays in June: 6th and 13th, from 10-5pm.  We are looking for a small group of volunteers to join us on those two days to assist with the job of shearing our herd.  It’s not difficult work, and you get an up close and personal experience with the fuzzy critters.  We need able bodied individuals to assist us.

We are also going to be having a summer BBQ with our ranch raised chicken for all the volunteers who RSVP to this event.  If you also desire to turn a day event into a campout weekend, we’ll give all our volunteers free lodging (but it’s limited to a small group and on a first-come, first-serve basis).  This is the perfect opportunity to plan a visit the ranch if you haven’t yet been out, or it has been a while since your last visit.  Be sure to RSVP ahead of time so we can properly plan for our guests and volunteers. 

If you’d like to come just to view the action, you are also welcome to attend.  Bring a lawn chair and some cold drinks in a cooler and enjoy the scene.  Again, please RSVP ahead of time with your intentions to allow us to plan properly.  (the post-shearing BBQ will be for volunteers only).

WHEN:  Saturday June 6th, and Saturday June 13th  from 10am – 5pm both days.

WHERE: Paca Pride Guest Ranch (directions available on our website:

RSVP is required for volunteers wishing to camp overnight.  Space is limited, be sure to call us first if you are considering staying!
