Annual Volunteer Banquet

The annual end-of-season Volunteer Banquet is always a success. This year the Spring Grove Farm Bed and Breakfast owned by park volunteers Joe and Emily Sayers hosted the event. The food was catered by Todd (staff) and Sheila Roach (volunteer). It was a great evening recognizing the many volunteers at Appomattox Court House.
