Valle Country Fair
There are a number of fair concessions operated by the church membership that give 100 percent of their proceeds to the Fair. Other exhibitors are asked to "tithe" by donating ten percent of their revenues to the Fair.
Concessions operated by the church include take-home treats like apple butter, jams and jellies and baked goods, as well as lunch fare like Brunswick stew, sausage with onions and peppers, chili, and barbecue.
The 2019 Fair channeled $60,000 to High Country organizations which serve people in need. Part of the money is disbursed via grants to area ministries and some is retained to be used by the outreach committee throughout the year to assist individuals and families in crisis.
