Murfee, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, received $ 5,000 in donations, and a Castleton couple, WCAX-TV, raised that amount reported. The US $ 10,000 will go to Fur Haven Dog Park.

Murfee was re-elected for a second term in March in a close race with a hen named “Colonel Kernel”.

Fair Haven started to have a volunteer mayor to raise money for the renovation of a playground in the community and to civically involve the local children. In 2018, residents elected Lincoln to the Goat as Honorary Mayor.
