Letter to the Editor: Waggin’ for Dragons event was huge success


I would like to thank everyone in the community who worked together to make the Second Annual Waggin’ for Dragons dragon boat race to benefit the Humane Society of Warren County a huge success.

This event would not have been possible without the support of the Holiday Inn & Suites Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows, Warren County Government/Parks and Recreation/Front Royal Golf Club, the Town of Front Royal, Photography by Savannah, Clem’s Garage, The Blue Winged Frog, Strite’s Donuts, Papa John’s, Eric Cales, Lowe’s, Warren County Fire and Rescue, Sheree Jennings, Jim Eastham, Ken Thurman, Bob McMillan, and the planning and event volunteers.

Due to the generosity and commitment of the 12 team captains and their competing teams and our two title sponsors — The Petco Foundation and Shenandoah Ford — Waggin’ for Dragons was, once again, a profitable fundraiser. The community’s collaborative participation has made a significant impact on our organization’s ability to save lives. You are all winners to me and heroes to the homeless animals of Warren County.

Lavenda Denney, executive director, Humane Society of Warren County
