Networking Lunch at Nichol’s

The lunch was sponsored by Firehouse Subs – An informative program, great food and great networking.

What a great turnout! There were at least 75 attending and many stepped up for the announcement segment at the end of meeting, including myself. I brought printed promotional handouts that had a summary of what the Friends of the Milton Library does for our Milton Library on one side, the other side was a membership application. I handed out many and left a stack on the promotional table for the taking. I hope we get some new members out of this networking event.

I should of taken some pictures!

If you haven’t seen the Santa Rosan this month, check it out online, I wrote the summary about out organization that is published. I also included a picture of Ned as Cat in the Hat but they didn’t use it – darn it!

Be sure to renew your membership for 2015 if you haven’t already, and spread the word!
