Also available: cashews and chocolate cashews, pistachios, chocolate macadamia, English walnuts, deluxe mixed nuts (no peanuts in this mix), chocolate raisins, and Brazil nuts. For peanut fans, there are chocolate or honey-roasted.

Alpha Beta philanthropic efforts to support Boehm Birth Defect Center each year include its annual Taster’s Luncheon in September and nut sale during the holiday season. The chapter also assists at the annual golf tournament in June and Roll and Stroll each fall.

Businesses, companies, and individuals are encouraged to support this sale. Nuts make great gifts. To place an order, call 423 266-5215 or contact any member of Alpha Beta for assistance.
