Does anything smell as good as apple butter in the making?? 😋 Such a great event and a wonderful cause!! Alumni, Marco & Virginia Warner, & Trustpoint Insurance held their 5th Annual Apple Butter Makin’ Festival on Saturday, Oct. 5th to benefit the Appalachian Service Dog Project….a great project that works to provide emotionally and physically disabled Veterans with dogs to provide therapy, assistance, and companionship.

If you’d like to get your hands on (& bellies full) of some of this DELICIOUS homemade apple butter and support this amazing cause, it will soon be up for sale in the Tazewell County Mercantile Store in Richlands, VA or contact Trustpoint Insurance in Richlands, VA. www.trustpointins.com

Thanks so much to Marco and Virginia for allowing us to come & enjoy the great food, festivities & fellowship! Also, a huge shout out to the Southwest Flying Eagles Baseball Team for volunteering to come along and help out as part of the Southwest Eagle Project Day of Service!!
