Oriental's Dragon Needs A Present
December 26, 2018

N
ew Years Eve in Oriental has a cast of thousands. But there is one key star of the show – The Dragon:

While he waits, he deserves appropriate accommodations for a Dragon of his social standing.

The Dragon has called quite a 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 $45 a month.

New Years Eve will see Dragon Runs at 8p and 11:30p, and then the Croaker Drop at midnight.

One of The Dragon’s challenges over its history has been finding a home for the rest of the year. That is being solved right now, and you can help. The Dragon has been housed in various sheds and barns over the years, sometimes suffering damage from the effects of weather over time.

Become A Dragon Patron
This is where you can help. The Dragon needs 22 “Patrons”. Patrons Of The Dragon, if you will. Each Dragon Patron pays $22.50 for a half month of storage. The Dragon doesn’t want any Patron to pay for more than $22.50 – no heroism needed. Just sponsor a half month.

There isn’t any Dragon corporation or any Dragon bank account, and organizers like that simplicity. So to keep this simple, Patrons will simply send a $22.50 check to Village Mini Storage.

All Dragon slots full – thank you!
