HENRIETTA, New York — The Farm Friends 4-H Club had a very successful Petting Zoo at the Country Max Days at the Dome Arena in Henrietta, New York April 15.

The 4-H club raised money for 4-H and promoted the fun of being a 4-H member. The Farm Friends kids sold four leaf clovers for a dollar each and the supporters got their names added to the clovers and posted on the wall overlooking the petting zoo.

The displayed animals included chickens, a bunny, one week old baby goats, and one young calf. Visitors had the chance to pet the animals and even hand feed a couple chickens.
