Animal lovers get ready, it is that time of year again – the annual Walk for Animals and all new Family Fun Day celebration is scheduled to take place Sunday, Oct. 6.
Residents of the St. James Area can join Humane Society volunteers and other area residents during this year’s walk to save the animals of Watonwan County.
