It is Blossom Trail time once again-a time filled with events that center around the beautiful blossoms that cover our fruit trees in this area. We sat down to chat with Tammy Wolfe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce, about one of those events, the Blossom Trail Bus Tour put on by the Sanger Chamber of Commerce. The Bus Tour takes place on February 23 and 24. blossom trail
