Southern States Cooperative in Marlinton is one of the official sponsors of the Pocahontas County Bicentennial Trout Project.
Southern States Co-op will sponsor the Cherry River Trout Sculpture, which will be placed in Cass in celebration of the county’s bicentennial – October 2021 – October 2022.
The Cherry River sculpture is one of eight large trout sculptures that will represent the eight rivers that have their headwaters in Pocahontas County.
