Night at the Ballpark (North Carolina)

The North Carolina team went to see the Durham Bulls play the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Monday, September 5, 2022. We had a suite at the Durham Athletic park, with a buffet and drinks. It was a fun night for all that ended with a Bulls win in extra innings!

The Family Picnic was a huge success and we had such great turnout! Thank you to Shea and all her helpers for putting on such a great event! Check out the event video and beautiful photos at the link below!

Happy Hour (DC Area)

The DC Happy Hour at Punchbowl Social in Arlington was a blast! We bowled, played games and connected face-to-face!

Smartini Hour

We had such a great turnout last night at the Smartini Hour!  We rocked it out to some 90s music, passed the Cheers and got stumped on Trivia.
