We had two great luncheons last week. First, Ike Leggett came and spoke to our members at our Leadership Luncheon at the Chamber office. 

Thank you to A Wider Circle for sponsoring our Leadership Luncheon Series 

We had a full house and enjoyed a delicious lunch at Stella Barra Pizzeria for our joint luncheon with the Rockville Chamber of Commerce. What a great annual tradition this has become!
