Montana Longears Association Newsletter - March, 2009

Submitted by Marilyn Stromberg, Montana Longears Association

Mule Days is just around the corner. The advertising crew is out and thought I would remind you that if you would like to sponsor some awards, classes or put an ad in the program the deadline is April 20th. We had such nice support from our members last year I would like to see that again.

There will be a "Strut Your Stuff Parade" Saturday evening of Mule Days. It will begin at 8:00 p.m. and will be making a run through the fairgrounds only. Everyone is welcome. If you have a costume, wear it. If you have a donkey or mules for sale, they are all welcome. All animals for sale are to have a green ribbon tied to their tail (ribbon available at the show office), that way people will know what is for sale during the parade. After the parade there will be a "Meet and Greet" area for sale animals following the parade at the north end of the arena on the track. The area will be well marked with signs. If you would like more information on the parade contact Julie Davis at jdavis@bitterroot.com 406-777-2524.

Don't forget to get your Mulette costume going. If you are interested in being in the Montana Mulettes this year please contact Becky Knutson knute@montanamules.com
