SOLON– January is the kick-off for the second annual Calf Classic sponsored by the Solon Library Foundation. Decorated calves are entered in the Beef Days parade and are auctioned to the highest bidder at the conclusion of the Beef Days celebration.
Artists interested in designing a calf for the second annual Calf Classic should obtain an artist packet available on the library website, www.solon.lib.ia.us  or by calling Sandy at 319-624-2710. Complete details, including sculpture dimensions and deadlines are included in the packet. Artists will be paired with a sponsor by the Calf Classic committee to create a uniquely decorated fiberglass calf sculpture.
Beginning this month, the committee will also be seeking sponsors, which requires a $250 entry fee. Don’t delay if you or your organization is interested in sponsorship. The classic will be limited to four sculptures. Proceeds support library programs initiated by the Solon Library Foundation.
The sponsors and artists will be included in the continuing publicity campaign to raise awareness of the Solon Public Library Foundation, the 41st Annual Beef Days event and the City of Solon.
