Dothan NOCIRC at the PorktoberQue fall festival in Dothan, Alabama

Event Date: September 27, 2013 - 5:00pm - September 28, 2013 - 9:00pm

Dothan NOCIRC will be distributing information at the upcoming PorktoberQue fall festival in Dothan, Alabama on Sept 27-28 at the Houston County Farm Center. This is our first booth as a NOCIRC center and we are expecting great results, as this event is going to have a relatively large turn out of around 3,500-5,000 people! We will be handing out NOCIRC pamphlets and other materials as well as answering questions and addressing concerns. Our booth will be located outdoors in front of the "Man Cave." We hope anyone in the southeastern area of the state will come out and show support.
