South Hill Chamber of Commerce Presents Cabot’s After Hours Wine & Cheese

Cabot Creamery hosted a South Hill Chamber of Commerce After Hours Wine and Cheese gathering in the heart of beautiful South Hill, Virginia. The event took place on Wednesday, June 4th and the Wine and Cheese tasting took place at Market Square, the same location as their popular Farmers’ Market. Chamber members enjoyed a sampling of Rosemont Vineyards local wines being paired with Cabot’s selection of cheeses. Local legend Ronnie Wells, chef at Brian’s Steakhouse, prepared a variety of appetizers for the event, many highlighting Cabot products. Guests enjoyed the sounds of Pure Acoustic Duo as they mingled.

Cathy Skott shares that “In 2012 we stopped at the Callahan Family Reunion in NC, just before crossing into Virginia and had a wonderful visit in the shade. We were lucky enough to find Carolyn and James Callahan at home. We visited with them under the shelter of their back porch during the only rain shower of the ride. They are new great grandparents and we shared that we are new grandparents”

About the Tour

The 2014 Cabot Community Tour is a celebration of the work of cooperatives, service organizations, and volunteers and honors our 1200 farm family owners’ three most cherished principals: Cooperatives, Community and Volunteerism. From May 17 through June 21, the Tour is following a route along the East Coast Greenway, stopping at cities and towns along the way, meeting with organizations and their volunteers and honoring the work that goes into making a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable community.

Supporting the tour is the Farmers’ Gratitude Grille, a traveling kitchen conceived by the farm families who own Cabot. Cabot chefs prepare healthy, delicious meals as a way of thanking those who generously give their time to others in their communities.

Our farmers understand the value of volunteerism, and how donating time and services make communities stronger and healthier. Interested volunteers who can’t join us on the Cabot Community Tour can still get involved by visiting the Reward Volunteers website, and downloading the free Reward Volunteers iPhone app, or using the online web widget. Reward Volunteers is a free, easy way to track the time you spend volunteering in your community – and to earn rewards for yourself and the organizations you serve.

The 2014 Community Tour was created by Cabot Creamery Cooperative and its fellow sponsors and supporters, including: AARP Create the Good, East Coast Greenway, HandsOn Network, Marriott, National Life Group, and local affiliates of Habitat for Humanity.
