This month OCEDP hosted our first Annual Networking Event post pandemic.

The event took place at Rishi's Restaurant located inside the French Lick Winery.

Board members and partnership members participated in an evening of networking, and enjoyed wonderful food provided from the establishment.

An annual recap was given to those in attendance of the accomplishments of the partnership along with future projects to come.

The new Executive Director: Skylar Whiteman was also announced at the event.
