The winning strategy is talking with people and not at them. In that spirit, this post will be less about what we did and

On a rainy Sunday evening in September, 70+ folks gathered inside the Downtown Martinsburg Public Library for the second annual Farm 2 Fork Dinner – a locally-sourced and prepared 4-course dinner.

There’s a lot to look forward to when Fall, our Autumn Equinox, rolls around. Albeit, the cool weather came a couple weeks late, but the real Autumn kicked into gear these last few days. We can’t wait to get out and hike under all those colorful leaves. Crisp air in the mornings with gentle breezes
