The Calf Classic committee of the Solon Library Foundation has extended the deadline for artistic designs to May 8.
The artist’s packet may be downloaded from the Library’s website or by calling 319-624-2710. Sponsors will then select the design to decorate their calf. Those artists chosen will receive a $100 stipend to defray some of the design costs. The completed calves will be on display in Solon just before Beef Days, July 21, when they will be entered into the Beef Days Parade. They will spend the day stabled in their booth on Main Street and will be auctioned off at 6 p.m.
