July 21, 2014. Giedre Snipas won a Husqvarna riding lawn mower in a raffle at the Watauga Humane Society’s 4 Paws Country Fair.
Snipas is the owner of Vanderpool Campground in Vilas. After her husband passed away, she was left with a broken lawn mower and the campground to tend to by herself, according Gilda Gordon, an administrative assistant with the Watauga Humane Society.
She purchased three raffle tickets at the 4 Paws Country Fair on the prior weekend and one of them was the winner of the Husqvarna riding lawn mower shown in the image above.
“Now Giedre is able to care for her campground with a proper lawnmower!!!” Gordon wrote in an email.
