October 6th marked a milestone day for the SwampDogs organization. They hosted their first annual Octoberfest at the Swamp, and raised money for Cumberland Strong. Cumberland Strong is the Cumberland Disaster Relief Coalition. With events like axe throwing, pumpkin bowling, live music and beer, there was something to do for everyone in the family. Doug Ray of the SwampDogs was quoted as saying, "This event was a first of its kind for us, and we are just grateful to be able to contribute and give back to our community in this way". The SwampDogs have been a major force in the community since 2001 and will kick off their 19th Summer of Fun in 2019 and this event was important to them to give back.
