SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22ND
Belmont Goats Fence-Stretching (and Post Ties and Hog Rings) Work Party!:
“We need bodies to hold up each segment as we stretch it, and then to attach fence ties. You can park in the field while we do all this work, so as not to crowd our neighbors on the narrow N Syracuse St. Let’s go! Saturday fence and “loafing shed”, then Sunday the goats arrive! (No time specific on that, yet.)”
6631 N Syracuse St * 11 am – 4 pm
