Thank you for contributing to the NCBCRA Holiday Spirit Fund Raiser

Give us a little time to hang your ornaments, wrap and place your gifts under the tree and post your Holiday Spirit messages below.

In the meantime, while the snow gently falls, sit back with a cup of cocoa, home fires burning, dogs at your feet (or in your lap) and read some of the holiday messages shared with us thus far.

In honor of our darling Beau, who is chomping at the bit to get back to work as he recuperates from ACL surgery!
