A calf gets a pat on the head Saturday at Rock River Gardens in Sterling. The 2-week-old bovine – nicknamed Frank by residents – was pressed into service to provide a bingo chip for the Cow-A-Dunga fundraiser for the mental health care facility. The aim of the game: To get Frank to deposit some dung on one of the squares; the ticket-holder who guessed which number Frank would do his doody – er, duty – on could win up to $5,000. The fundraiser also featured a petting farm, face painting, cotton candy, popcorn and walking tacos. Proceeds will help pay for activities, room items and other residents’ needs at Petersen Health Care facilities in Rock Falls and Sterling.
