You’re invited to join the BUZZ production team for an online Watch Party via Zoom, starting at 6:45 pm.

Watch Party sponsored by Branch Builds.
About the episode:
Mountain Valley Charitable Foundation has made eastern Montgomery County, Virginia, the “community that could.” Over the last 15 years MVCF has redeveloped an abandoned nursing home into a wellness center, community center, museum and library; transformed an old fire station into a food pantry and thrift shop; created Old Town Fields concert venue out of a former high school football field; and founded the Eastmont Tomato Festival.
But with all their many ventures that go by different names — plus the added confusion of the controversial Mountain Valley Pipeline — MVCF was looking for a makeover. Guiding the nonprofit with a pro bono rebranding are our friends from Wordsprint, who helped Mill Mountain Zoo in Episode 3.
