Suffolk Peanut Fest has suffered the loss of a longstanding volunteer. Our organization survives on the efforts of volunteers, their hard work, dedication and loyalty. Whenever we lose a dear member of the Suffolk Peanut Fest family it is heartbreaking. We remain grateful for their years of service, love of Suffolk and the gift of their presence in our lives and organization.
