Friends Of The Dragon 2016
Even A Dragon Needs A Home
December 29, 2015

T
he New Years Eve Dragon is a patient lad. Other than his one big night on the town… he waits. And waits. He dreams of his Dec 31st accolades, the adoring crowds, screaming girls, the rumble of the drums… the ding of wooden spoons on tin pans.

While he waits, he deserves comfortable digs.

The Dragon has called quite few places home, some better protected than others. A few years ago he got a new home – his own 10 × 10 storage unit at Village Mini Storage on Broad Street. It keeps him dry and ready. It is funded through the generosity of folks like you, who become Patrons Of The Dragon.

The Dragon is hoping to keep his home.

That storage unit costs $495 a year. That is divided up 24 ways. That’s $495 / 24 = $20.63.

The Dragon in action. When he isn’t out wowing crowds, he likes a dry resting place.
Become A Dragon Patron
This is where you can help. Become one of the 2016 “Patrons”. Each Dragon Patron pays $20.63 for a half month of storage. The Dragon is a proud fellow – he doesn’t want any Patron to pay for more than $20.63. Just sponsor a half month. Think of it as a New Years gift to the Dragon.

There isn’t any Dragon corporation or any Dragon bank account. Dragon Patrons will simply send a $20.63 check to Village Mini Storage.

To become a Dragon Patron, just email in your contact info to dragon@towndock.net, and then we will email back confirmation and instructions on where to mail your Patron check. Your name, or your business name, can be listed as a Dragon Patron.

Thank you – great folks who care about Oriental stepped up. All the 2016 Dragon Patron slots have been filled. The Dragon thanks you!
