GREAT DAY at the Museum. Today was Deputy Dawg Day. Museum staff got to thank the LCSO for all the help and support they have given us since they moved into the Historic Courthouse a couple of years ago. We cooked Belly Buster hot dogs for them, along with some chips and a beverage for lunch. Lots of fun for us, and, we hope, for all who attended. We served 119 hot dogs!
