Just an update on the Hammer-in.
After all was said, done, burned, hammered.......I was able to send a $700.00 donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on behalf of the Trakrock Hammer-in Spring Event.
Thank you all that participated and a special thanks to you special friends that step up and help me behind the scenes.
I'm truly blessed.
