We're entering our 5th season with lots of goals. Roy Rogers is donating 25% of all purchases from 5-8 pm to our league. Help the skaters by eating some taters (and roast beef, chicken, burgers, salad).
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the 301 Deby Dames Roller Derby Team, with our Paint your Pet Fundraiser! We had a great time. Here is the picture of our league members with some of their pets. #301derbydames
The Annual Casey Jones Shamrock 5K Run/Walk was held on Sunday, March 11th at Casey Jones in LaPlata, MD.
The beneficiary of this year’s race was Farming 4 Hunger. Their mission statement is "To feed the hungry and help feed the soul. Hunger comes in many different ways. Healing the mind, body and spirit is at the core of Farming 4 Hunger. We believe if you serve others, you too will be fed. "
This was the Dames 4th year volunteering!
