    Hard to believe that it’s been two years since the last Animal House Ball to benefit Almost Home Pet Adoption Center here in Nelson. This was the first time the event was held at the Carriage House on Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington. What a beautiful place and a great event. We’ll have much more on this in the June issue but here’s preview.

    The attendance at this year’s ball was terrific! The ball room was packed and everyone had a great time.
