On November 6 at 6:00 pm, the Blue Ridge Business Development Center will host a reception for a display of art work created by the students of Sparta Elementary School. Light refreshments will be served. The public is encouraged to attend and support these students.
The exhibit will be displayed through January 2019 and is open to the public.
