The sessions are being sponsored in part by BB&T, Clear Mountain Bank, First Peoples Community Federal Credit Union, First United Bank & Trust, and Somerset Trust Company.
 
The sessions will take place in the downstairs dining room at Ace’s Run Restaurant and Pub.  Light refreshments will be served.
