We had just attended a moving memorial service for April Heiderich and it struck us how much she had done for the Blue Ridge Chapter of the ACBS. We met April several years ago when we had the ship store in a trailer, (unorganized and in disarray). It was always a challenge to get someone to organize, order, and sell the Blue Ridge products. April volunteered immediately, reorganized all our products and started ordering whatever items the members were requesting. She just took it upon herself, saw the need, and fulfilled whatever needed to be done. Through the years she was always willing to step right up and help people. We recalled the numerous receptions she and John hosted at their home offering plenty of food, beverages and good fellowship. She was an integral part of our chapter and she will be missed.
