Special thanks to the walk committee for all their hard work. And to the team of volunteers who donated many hours behind the scenes to make this event successful.
Thank you to the Central Lakes Search and Rescue Team from Clarissa for coming to show us their team and what service they provide. And to Brainerd Kennel Club for their great demo.
