8th Annual Tree Farm Relay- Saturday July 27!!

PrintYes, due to popular demand, it’s back and better than ever!! Our 2012 race was another HUGE success with 125 teams taking turns racing around the Tree Farm. We are hard at work planning the 2013 race, and we expect to have more fun, more surprises… and hopefully great weather!!!
