BEACH DOGS GIVE BACK-
Each year Beach Dogs Lacrosse tries to do something to better the world we live in. Sometimes it’s local like Boys Town RI or close by like the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. This year for the 5th time we welcome HARLEM LACROSSE and Leadership. We will have 12 exceptional middle and high school students joining us for the week. We have some outstanding volunteer families who are opening their homes for the week to make this all possible. Thanks to all who are giving of themselves. We look forward to getting to know the 8 boys and 4 girls coming from this incredible program.
