Mark your calendars -- in April, we'll meetup at Peddler's Market on the 21st. Meetups are held the third Thursday of the month at various businesses around Town. Check out our Events page for the meetup locations and guest speakers we've already scheduled through June. As we schedule the rest of the year, we'll add them to our Events.
