Here’s What Some of Our Members Say…

“Membership in the ANFVB has provided our business with more promotion than any other entity we are involved with. The nominal Membership fee should allow almost any size business to join and the benefits each of us receive far out weigh the cost. Linda Devlin and the outstanding board work tirelessly promoting our region, not only within Pennsylvania, but all over the world and our business has definitely grown because of it.”
Sue Zampogna, Flickerwood Wine Cellars – Kane, PA


“I’ve been in business in Kane for 38 years and advertised a lot in local newspapers. I’ve never had the results that I have had with your organization. I think it had much to do with the pamphlets that you distributed for us. People come from everywhere with a pamphlet in their hand. I think you’ve done a great job helping us be the biggest little store around.”
Jack Bell, Bell’s Meat & Poultry – Kane, PA
