FROM THE HUNDREDS OF NAMES WE RECEIVED…
Thanks to all of you, but we have chosen the most popular name for our Virginia State Parks’ mascot. Let me be the first to introduce you to the most handsome fox in town, Ranger Parker Redfox!
Over the next couple of months, we will be sharing where Ranger P.R. can be found. He’ll be popping up at Virginia State Park events and festivals all over the state, helping to lead educational programs and will also be chatting with you Twitter and Facebook followers from time-to-time.
When you get to meet him for the first time, make sure to snap a pic and share it with us on social media using #vastateparks so we are sure to find it. We love to see our park friends enjoying the state parks, and if you are lucky, you will be chosen as the Pic of the Week to be shared on our Facebook page.
Congratulations to our three winners who were chosen randomly from those who suggested the name Parker. Drum roll please…
The Grand Prize goes to… Velma Johnson
The 2nd Place winner is… Rich Marino
And the 3rd Place winner is… Thomas Beatty
Thank you again for helping us name our Fox, and have a foxy day!
