April 2018
From the Director
Did you finish your taxes yet? Start your spring cleaning? Time to go through the old files and get rid of that old paper stuff you've been keeping, just in time for our Shredding Day on April 14. There's nothing quite as satisfying as clearing out old stuff and making it disappear.
Celebrate the return of Spring at our Business After Hours at Rocky's Aqua, then really lighten things up on April 27 at our Evening of Comedy at the Westbrook Elks.
