Our recent gathering and meeting was an amazing celebration of 20 years dedicated to promoting and perfecting our craft in the Roanoke Valley. The stories from long-time members and elected officials gave newer members a grand perspective of what 20 years of guild life was like. Thanks again to volunteers that worked to organize the party and especially Big Lick that hosted us in their wonderful new West Station brewery. If you were unable to see the over-the-years slideshow in Big Lick’s event room, the link following will allow you to view it online (members only).
The celebration and meeting was attended by 79 members, 19 guests and 12 wee-brewers for a total of 110. Let’s extend a warm welcome to new or returning members: Kevin Noguiera (not attending), Sandy & Susan Leivy, Craig Johnson, Ron Clark and Dick Willis. Membership now stands at 111.
