This year marks our third annual #BOCOGrateful campaign, a time for all of us to reflect on our many blessings in Botetourt County. Stop by the library and fill out a flower petal with something you’re grateful for, and we’ll decorate our desks with BOCO gratitude flowers for everyone to enjoy. We have so many reasons to be thankful that we live, work, and play in Botetourt County. What are you most #BOCOGrateful for?
