Thank you Whitinger family for letting us see you all and enjoy the happy, loving family. What a special treat for us.


I agree but the winter will pass more quickly than the previous winter, as seasons (and years) are prone to do, and hopefully, the NARR will return for another season in 2018! Can you believe it, 2018 is just around the corner!

Thank you Dave and all the vendors for such a wonderful NARR season, it's been so much fun. I'm very happy to be included among the winners, but I must say that my favorite NARR so far was the Sept. NARR. What a wonderful group of people we are! Group hug Lovey dubby
