On Saturday, April 13, Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina will host a meet and greet at Newgrass Brewing Co. in uptown Shelby from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Participants can enter to win raffle prizes donated by Newgrass Brewing Co. and Foothills Conservancy.

“We are thrilled to host Foothills Conservancy for this event,” said Brady Norman, front of house manager for Newgrass Brewing Co. “They do great work across our region, including here in Cleveland County and our community will benefit from learning more about it. We’re pleased to begin this new partnership!”
