Help wanted: Does anyone have or know of where we might find an adult size Skunk costume? Any seamstresses out there that would want to make and donate one? We are thinking it would be a nice addition to the Bowl to have a friendly Skunk circulating in the crowd. If we find a costume are there any volunteers that would like to be “Skunk for a time”? Just let me know.
