Kramers Host Annual ‘Beagle Fest’

Beagles were on the minds of a group of people who gathered June 18 at the Canal Road home of Mayor Phillip Kramer and his wife, Laurie.

The couple hosted their annual “Beagle Fest,” where owners of rescued beagles get together for a picnic and to give their dogs some play time.

Although it’s billed as a beagle fest, Kramer said, the event has morphed over the years to include other breeds as well.

“Almost all the beagles are rescued from SOS Beagles,” he said. “We got our first beagles 22 years ago, and all the eagles we’ve had are rescues from them.”

SOS Beagle Rescue – the full name of which is Save Our Snoopies Beagle Rescue – was founded in New Jersey in 1991 by Linda Forrest of Atco. The charity has chapters in Tennessee and Alabama, according to its web site.

Following are some scenes from the day.
