 Kick started the month of August with another terrific Breakfast Club meeting at Brothers! Maybe it was due to the cancellation of July’s Breakfast Club meeting or maybe not but either way it was a tremendous turn out. Always a great sight to see so many members and new members (we had 2 this month) turning out to start their day in a warm and welcoming networking opportunity. We handed 3 more of our much sought after Breakfast Club “Coffee Mugs”- do you have yours yet??
The Annual Chamber Summer Outing took place on Tuesday evening July 26 at the Quannapowitt Yacht Club. The weather and the view from the outside deck were both beautiful and added to the evening's enjoyment. Music filled the air, as all present indulged in the delicious buffet provide by Laurie’s 9:09, while enjoying a beverage of their choice. All in all, it was another successful and fun-filled evening for all in attendance. We would like to make a special mention and “Thank you” to our friends at the Quannapowitt Yacht Club and Laurie’s 9:09 for their generosity in contributing to the night’s success.
