Sponsors and vendors still wanted for fall charity carnival

October 10, 2017 by  

The eighth annual Especially Needed Fall Carnival encourages any business, individual, or organization in the Fort Worth area to join in on the fun.

Especially Needed is a nonprofit organization established to support people with special needs. Its goal is to help create a loving community and encourage acceptance and understanding of such people. The fall carnival is an accessible event that makes it possible for families with special needs members to get out, have fun, and meet their neighbors.

There are a number of activities already planned including games, prizes, and a clown, as well as trick or treating. Any group or individual who would like to contribute their talents or help sponsor the event is asked to reserve a booth through the Eventbrite website, or to call for more information at (214) 499-3439.

Vendors can set up a booth, offer promotional items or help to get the word out to the community about the event with posters and flyers. Just under 400 families attended the carnival last year to take part in the fun and take advantage of the informative resource fair that takes place simultaneously.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 28 from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The event will take place at the Life Time Fitness center at 971 State Highway 121 in Allen.

Fort Worth Zoo announces horned lizard hatching

July 31, 2017 by  

Appropriately, 37 days prior to the start of Texas Christian University (TCU) football season, 37 Texas horned lizards came out of the shells at the Fort Worth Zoo.

If not already engaged in cross promotion, ad specialties could be a possible joint marketing option for TCU and the zoo. College football fans, who are always looking for a favorable sign, may see the timely hatching of the Texas horned lizards to be an omen for a good TCU Horned Frogs season. Although the zoo’s newest arrivals are lizards rather than frongs, they still somewhat resemble the university’s mascot, except the recently hatched lizards are not purple.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) lists the horned lizards as a threatened species, and the lizards were first successfully breed at the Fort Worth Zoo. According to Chelsea Adler, zoo spokeswoman, over 300 lizards have been hatched there in the last 12 years. Currently, 18 female and 16 male lizards, as well as 90 juvenile lizards, are at the zoo and 94 have been returned to the wild.

The lizards are typically native to West Texas, where they grow from 3.5 to 6 inches on a diet of made up exclusively red ants. For now, however, the baby lizards are roughly the size of a bottlecap. An interesting fact about the Texas horned lizard, as mentioned on the TPWD website, is that as a defense mechanism they can project blood from their eyelids.
