The idea behind a Lunch Mob is a meet-n-greet group that will show up at a specified restaurant. It’s great way to support our hard working Chamber Member restaurants ,  and it happens at a different restaurant every month. Let’s go to lunch and show our support and appreciation for being a  C hamber member restaurant and supporter of our local community.  
 
These casual, no - host luncheons are a great opportunity to meet and network with fellow members. So grab a  C hamber member, colleague, friend, neighbor or future member and join us for lunch!

Note - this is a No Host, order off the menu event.
There will be no program or agenda. Stop in anytime between 11:30am and 1pm for lunch!
