By Valerie Close · 9:48am April 26th, 2016
This is just a quick reminder, that Vinton Today is in the midst of our annual fundraiser. For those of you that might have missed it, this year we are taking on a huge project and recreating the Vinton Today website. We, and those that created the website, feel that we need to update our system before it becomes obsolete, leaving you without a clue about what's happening in and around Vinton! We need EVERYONE to pitch in this year and do what you can to help us out.
