A Kiss for a Good Cause

The Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce’s Festival of Trees brought with it plenty of laughs, as exemplified by the accompanying photos. It was promised that Chamber President Donnie Riggenbach would kiss a pig if 100 people attended the second annual event; however, the attendance number didn’t quite make it to the magic number. Yet, there was hope! Guests needed to donate an additional $34 (about $1 for each lacking guest) and Riggenbach agreed to kiss Marvin, of the Olive Branch Animal Rescue. It didn’t take but a few minutes for the needed cash to be raised.
