In-Person Networking Recap...
In-person networking began this past month (see photos below) beginning with a sold-out event at Alternate Ending Beer Co. in Aberdeen complete with beer and gourmet pizza. This epic event was followed by a beautiful evening on the patio of Mediterranean Chateau in Matawan with great happy hour drink and appetizer specials. We then held our first indoor luncheon at one of our favorite restaurants - LaCashina in Marlboro. 

It was great to be together again to catch up with members who we haven't seen in a long time, to welcome new members and to meet potential members. Watch your emails for our summer events!
