BHRR's Benjamin and I are going to 'go it alone' as the lone team representation of BHRR! WISH US LUCK! Come cheer us on! This is going to be a lot of entertainment for all!!!

Thanks to all of our Volunteers that will be hanging with me one or both days! I shall be there both days, all day and I know the dogs would love the extra loving. 🙂 I can promise drool, leans, hair and laughs!

Set-up is 7 AM – 9 AM both days.
