Thank You Dog House Computers!!!!
We would like to thank Dog House Computers for generously donating a computer to BDES. Unfortunately our old computer crashed over the summer & we were in desperate need of a new one.The computer will be used to protect our children using the same sign in software we used last year. This system is important & not only saves pictures of every person who enters BDES but it also checks every person to make sure they are not a registered sex offender. So we ask that if you have ANY computer needs PLEASE give your business to Dog House Computers & tell them Byrns Darden sent ya. Thanks again Dog House Computers we are eternally grateful!!!!!
