It is all about fun in April and playing April Fools with our events.
Join us for our April 18th Breakfast at Gendron Franco Center!
On Thursday, April 18th, we’ll have BREAKFAST FOR DINNER along with our regular speaker program at the Gendron Franco Center from 4:45PM-7:00PM.
Grab a drink and do some networking before the programming starts. It’ll be just like breakfast, but at dinner! We will be introducing new members, sponsors, having a speaker, 50/50 and door prizes!
So, no fooling, we are mixing things up in response to some Chamber investors who want to attend our programs but can’t make the usual times.
