Woodmen present $2500 donation for dog park

Saturday, September 2, 2017
Recently, members Woodmen of America presented a $2500 matching donation to members of the Dyersburg Dog Park advisory board and Dyer County Leadership. Back in July, during the annual Dyer County BBQFest, members of leadership pioneered a silent auction fundraising event in an effort to raise funds for the purchase of a fence and other items for the up-and-coming dog park, which, pending city approval, will be located aside the downtown Dyersburg Main Street Farmers Market. The auction raised just over $2,500. To date, Dyer County Leadership has collected approximately $5,785.50, with only $215 to go before reaching their $6,000 goal.
