EVENT HIGHLIGHT The Ballantyne Breakfast is officially changing its name to the Veteran Breakfast! For those of you that don't know, this is a virtual networking breakfast that happens on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 AM on zoom. The name change is meant to reflect that the event is not limited to people living near Ballantyne but that any veteran is welcome to join!
