A 4-H club is looking for a falconer to speak with their group December 14th. Contact mollylahay@gmail.com if you're willing/interested. Please see below for details.

From Molly LaHay:

I am a co-leader of a 4-H Club in Nash County, the Feathers N' Fur Club that was interested in having a guest speaker at our December 14th meeting in Nashville, NC. The falconer would speak from 7-8 pm or somewhat less than that. We would be meeting in the Cooperative Extension's auditorium and would have a stage available for set up with the kids in chairs 6' apart. We usually have the speaker talk, with any possible demos and then a round of question and answers. Would you have anyone who would be interested in being our guest speaker? Thank you. mollylahay@gmail.com
