Town Talk: A conversation with Steven Schetrom and Meghan Bowers, Waggin’ for Dragons

Published

on

In this Town Talk, our publisher Mike McCool speaks with Steven Schetrom and Meghan Bowers about the upcoming Waggin’ for Dragons boat race. This annual event is a major fundraiser for the Humane Society of Warren County, and this year they are partnering with the United Way and the Front Royal-Warren County Chamber of Commerce.

Their annual Dragon Boat race is back and set to sail on August 7, 2021, and is planned to be bigger and better than ever. Their race teams are made of the local community and business groups and will be racing and raising that much-needed money for THREE great non-profits.

This team-building experience is like nothing else you’ll find.  You’ll paddle along the scenic Shenandoah River in traditional Chinese dragon boats. Between races, teams will hang out along the river.

Spectators are free, but please consider putting a team together! Teams consist of 20 racers and one drummer. You’ll be provided with the boat, the practice, and the location, and you provide your local community with the means to make a  difference!


Please reach out to the Human Society at 540-635-4734 or their Facebook page.  Want to form a team? You can Register here.

The Humane Society of Warren County is a non-profit animal shelter in Front Royal, Virginia.  Established in 1947, we have been a safe haven to the lost, abandoned, and abused pets in Warren County for over 70 years.  In 2012, they achieved no-kill status, and are proud to maintain it.  You can expect an inviting and welcoming atmosphere when you visit the shelter and compassionate care for their animals.

The United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of the challenges we face. Living United means being part of the change!

The Front Royal-Warren County Chamber of Commerce promotes and supports its membership by serving as its voice, providing relevant programs, encouraging leadership, and creating a strong business climate and a vibrant community.

Published

on

In this Town Talk, Roxanne Bauserman joined Mike McCool in the Royal Examiner studio to discuss the 9th Annual Zombie Walk.


Every year about this time, Zombies make their way into our town. This year they are scheduled to appear on October 23, 2021. They seem to first gather at Bing Crosby Stadium at 6 pm, and then make their way down Royal Avenue, to Main Street and end up at the ‘BooMuseum” (Virginia Beer Museum will be converted to a haunted house), across from the gazebo area off of Main Street.

Music this year will be provided by Shae Park and the River Driven Band.

Mark Williams of the National Media Services graphics department designed a killer 2021 zombie t-shirt. Zombie shirts will be available through our T-shirt store or at C&C Frozen Treats on Main Street. Proceeds help support the Humane Society of Warren County.


 

Check-in with the Zombie Walk Facebook page for details about how to enter this year: facebook.com/fr.zombiewalk.

Put on your best zombie costume and practice your best shambling limp, because it’s time for the annual FRONT ROYAL ZOMBIE WALK!

The Walk will begin at Bing Crosby Stadium at 6 pm sharp.  Don’t want to participate in the Walk? Come on down and watch the parade of zombies go by, and enjoy the festivities because it’s definitely a sight to see. This is one town community event you don’t want to miss!

Please invite/share this event with your friends so we can make this the BIGGEST and BEST one yet! If you haven’t liked our page yet, please do so you can keep up to date on all the latest news: https://www.facebook.com/fr.zombiewalk

This is a FREE event, but we are asking EVERYONE TO PLEASE BRING A DONATION (money or product, a wish list will be posted on the Facebook page as it gets closer to the actual event) to The Humane Society of Warren County. They will be set up at the beginning and end of the walk to collect your donations for your convenience. Thank you in advance!
