Chapel Hill/Carrboro CROP Hunger Walk to be held on April 23, 2017 starting at the Carrboro Town Commons at 2:30 p.m.
Looking to make a difference in our local community and in communities worldwide, the Chapel Hill/Carrboro CROP Hunger Walk helps to end hunger and poverty through long-term sustainable approaches to significantly reduce or eliminate hunger. A portion of the funds raised stay with the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service to help people in our Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities.

April 23, 2017, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM @ Carrboro Century Center - Century Hall
Ron Cromer will show a slide presentation which is coordinated with a discussion of various topics. The topics include the dispelling of common myths associated with snakes, the proper way to hold a snake, pattern identification, an overview of a snake's anatomy and characteristics, and a strong warning concerning the handling of snakes found in the wild. The participants will learn about the characteristics of poisonous snakes, feed an iguana, and experience a snake's awesome ability to swallow a fish or an earthworm.
The "hands-on" session is an opportunity to hold and pet more than a dozen tamed snakes. This session concludes with a finale of a giant python available for holding and petting. A "snake-free" zone will be provided for those who do not feel comfortable participating in the petting session.
