Words from the Chamber

Registration has begun for the Appomattox Hot Chocolate 5K Run, scheduled for Nov. 16 at Falling River Country Club. Registration can be made at RunSignUp.com. If you attempted to sign up earlier and were unable to complete the process, the problems have been corrected.

If you are not a runner or walker and want to help us be successful with this event, we are seeking sponsors for the event and volunteers to help us stage the race. Contact me or Whitney at our office.

At noon on Friday, Sept. 20, join the United Way of Central Virginia at Courtland Festival Park for a slice of pizza, a drink and a fruit pop. Come out and learn about how the charity functions and what it does to help in Appomattox.
