The event serves as a great opportunity for community members to connect with one another and with community support agencies that are here to help maintain the beautiful, rural agricultural county. 

Sustainability is a key component of the event, and attendees are encouraged to bring their coffee mugs and plates. 

The complimentary breakfast will be served at the Green Creek Community Center, located at 25 Shields Drive in Tryon.
