A group of people at a networking event pose for the camera.

We started off March deliciously at Perkins with our morning coffee connection! We had a nice group of our Chamber friends show up for networking, coffee and breakfast goodies! Thanks to our hosts who also came to our rescue last month and hosted a social when we had to cancel our membership breakfast!
