Saturday’s “Women Rock Botetourt” event was a big hit, Lee Minnix said. “We had close to 100 ladies attend the event,” she said. The Ladies Business Expo was held at the Troutville Town Hall and Pomegranate Restaurant in Troutville. Above, the Troutville Sunshine Girls who organized the expo posed for a picture.
