The Little Red Hen, Barry Downard


Vee, Derby Day here is the first Saturday in May and was cancelled for the second time in its 145-year history because of Covid 19. The first time was during WWII. It is rescheduled for September 5. It will be interesting to see the difference in the hats from springtime.
