The Clarksville-Montgomery County Humane Society (CMCHS) hosted family fun fest at Clarksville Regional Airport CRA) recently, with helicopter and airplane rides, a Frisbee dog exhibition, inflatables, food trucks, music, a car show and more.
It was CRA’s first annual Wags & Wings and part of the proceeds from the event will benefit CMCHS, but when the sun went down the party moved inside for CMCHS’s first annual Hangar Party.
Courtney Berlyak talked about the day’s activities. “Tonight is our first hangar party, an adults only party to raise money for CMCHS. We have great live music by The Beagles. We also have adult beverages sponsored by Budweiser of Clarksville, food from Zaxby’s, Good Eats and others. It’s going to be a great night.”
CMCHS ended its Wags to Witches Fur Ball Bash last year after a great ten year run. This year, John Patterson from CRA and Frank Lott from BLF Marketing contacted them and proposed this new event. With much effort from all parties, they were able to pull it all together.
“This has been bigger and better than we had hoped,” Berlyak said. “The Humane Society is doing well. We finally opened our spay/neuter clinic. It’s a high-volume, low-cost center, and a couple of weeks ago we did 33 procedures in one day, so that’s approaching our goal already.
“We are getting it done. We are helping rescue groups and local people its not just for low-income pet owners. It’s for anybody. This is a wonderful thing. It’s been a dream of ours for years, and we are so happy to have it up and running.
“We just appreciate all the support we have been given, and if anyone wants to come see us we are located at 940 Tennessee Ave. right behind Arby’s on Riverside Dr.
