This will be a fun day of stewardship, teamwork and community building starting at 8 a.m. at Mathews County Visitor and Information Center (MCVIC), where we will gather for coffee, hot chocolate and donuts as well as distribute supplies, clean-up assignments and free tickets for door prize giveaways.
