We had a great time at our annual Volunteer Luncheon last week hosted by the Kirkley Hotel. Our volunteers are such an integral part of the work that we do every single day, so it fills our hearts with great joy to be able to take the time to honor these special, hardworking individuals. We cannot thank everyone enough for their service to the residents of Runk & Pratt and to the greater Lynchburg and Smith Mountain Lake communities. You all are truly making the world a better place every day and impacting so many lives! Keep it up! ... See MoreSee Less
