The Year-End Dinner was held on September 29th, 2016 at the Orchard at Altapassa 2016 grant recipient. Forty three people were in attendance, including representation from 14 of the 33 projects, members of Cooperative Extension, WNC Communities and the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.

Photographs from all the year’s projects were shared and each grant recipient had the chance to update the group on highlights from their 2016 projects.

A wonderful meal made from 2016 recipient’s farm products was prepared by chef Robin Ellis (from the Orchard at Altapass). The Orchard at Altapass provided an excellent venue for this annual year-end event to celebrate the grant recipients’ hard work.
