Bigger and better is one way to describe the 2018 Christmas season, which drew large and thirsty crowds to the wineries, breweries, distilleries, and other establishments that make up the Nelson 151 business coalition. The businesses shared their largess by designating a portion of their sales to the Nelson County Community Fund through the 9th annual “Twelve Days of Christmas on Nelson 151.” Nelson 151 business owners presented NCCF with a check for $4,720. The funds will go a long way toward making grants to nonprofits meeting the humanitarian needs of Nelson County residents. This year’s combined donation check was higher than last year’s donation, noted Nelson 151 president Lindsay Dorrier of Bold Rock Hard Cider. Larger crowds coming to the area to ski, and better publicity, were probable factors. “We are truly thankful for the enduring support of the businesses that make up the 151 coalition,” said NCCF/Nelson County Advisory Committee co-chair Sarah Jane Stewart. It’s all about neighbors helping neighbors.
