The "Savage Surgeons" Ripley 4-H vet club was up to its elbows in soap suds and baked goods at the fund-raiser held Saturday at the Ripley Vet Clinic.

Assisted by club leaders Dr. Kenneth Bridge, Julia Kremer and Robyn Bridge, and junior leaders Kim Hooey and Jonathon Farrell, the group was washing cars and pets, and selling baked goods to make enough money to take the 32-member club on a field trip to Marineland Aug. 18.

By lunch time, the club had washed about 20 cars and nearly a dozen animals, and sold plenty of baking. The youth were holding up well under the excessive heat, spraying each other with water as they cleaned up the vehicles and pets.

The group certainly did a good job scrubbing down the Kincardine Times vehicle which had barely managed to get away from Kincardine unscathed after a couple of hefty political announcements Saturday morning.
