Upcoming Events

Snake Saturday Parade
Saturday, March 14, 11:00 a.m.
North Kansas City, MO
(Parade line-up location and time TBA)

Kris Yount has been busy making costumes and van decorations for this year's Snake Saturday Parade. The theme of the parade this year is "A Little Bit O'Blarney." The Parade Committee awards prize money to the best groups (in their opinion) in the parade. The parade has been a good fund-raiser for HANR in the past and we have won as much as a $1000.00 several times. Please contact Kris at kybbdogs@gmail.com and let her know if you are coming to the parade and how many Newfs you will be bringing. Hope a bunch of you can make it this year. The bigger the group is and uniformity leads to bigger prize money.
