Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated to, cooked or baked for,  participated in and had a booth at this amazing event.  A special thanks goes to JD Eicher and the Goodnights and Amanda Jones and the Family Band for the wonderful music. You guys ROCK!

Despite the lower bike turnout due to the weather reports, we had more people and made three times what we did last year for the kitties!
