It was a unique llama sighting when the Lora Llamas Ranch put on a presentation for the Westside Ministries kids at Columbia Park.
Mayor John Lazar asked Lora Crawford, of Lora Llamas Ranch in Turlock, about putting on a presentation at her ranch. Because of logistics, Mayor John Lazar just invited her to bring the pets out to Columbia Park.
While the kids enjoyed the ice cream Mayor Lazar brought out, they learned about Llamas and Alpacas.
Two other people contributed to the Lora Llamas Ranch presentation, Suzanne Hoover of Rosewood Alpacas in Patterson and Berverlee McClung of Wool and Flax Llama Farm of Turlock.
About 100 kids enjoyed the presentation at Columbia Park. After petting the llamas, most of the kids went swimming at the Marty Yerby Pool at Columbia Park.
