   LOCAL NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

**denotes Women’s Group

MARCH/APRIL

Well Networkers we are at a new place we’ve never been before! So many postponed/cancelled events which we will hopefully be able to reschedule in coming months. In the meantime let’s remember how nice it is to receive snail mail — you know those handwritten notes we used to write! But even a nice text, email, or yes phone call can do wonders to help you keep in touch through the next number of weeks. Let’s all be positive, and VERY careful and responsible! And let’s be sure we encourage each other however, and whenever we can!! I will leave a sample up of the regularly scheduled events for your reference. Please do not hesitate to call or message me in some way if you have questions about any of these.

Be well and Be Wise!!
