Moss in the Forest

Welcome:
Welcome to the Moss in the Forest chapter. Our chapter was established in 1992 and we currently have eleven active members from the Lynchburg, VA, area including Amherst, Forest, and Lynchburg. We are a small group who, through our love for Pat’s art and desire to help children, have built strong friendships within our chapter and with other Moss “family” members.
