On August 16, Cube Gallery hosted our soiree. Milltown Arms Tavern generously provided complimentary snacks, wine and beer for our guests. Wow-those fritters sure were delicious! Chad Reilly from Cube Gallery was a gracious host. We had thirteen guests throughout the evening and Cube Gallery was a perfect space for relationship building. During our 60 second introductions, we learned about our new member, Zach Porter. He is a professional photographer in the area photographing everything from weddings to corporate events to photos for your website. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On September 20, 2012, Six Feet Under Pub and Fish House hosted our soiree on their beautiful rooftop deck. A huge thanks to Six Feet Under for their gracious hospitality and continued support!
