Autumn Pointe

Bettie and O.B. Curtis (from left) listen to Adrianna Hernandez tell them about her naked neck showgirl chicken, Meep, outside Autumn Pointe on Saturday.

Residents at Autumn Pointe in Fort Calhoun looked out their windows to a tad unusual sight — a calf, a corgi and several other creatures making their way around the building in a pet parade.

For residents, many of whom lived on farms or had their own animals, it was a chance to reminisce. For the Pioneer Pals 4-H club, it was a chance to practice speaking and showing their animals for fairs.

"This is our fifth year for the parade," co-leader Micki Hernandez said. "It's our first one outside."

Bettie and O.B. Curtis were at their windows to see the animals.

"It means a lot because we can't get out and can't go far when we do," Bettie said.
