Thank you to everyone who came to April’s Social and joined us for some BUNCO FUN! A great big shout out to C3 Insurance, Cindy Lou, Beverly, and Vanessa for hosting our Bunco night and all of their help in setting up and cleaning up.

I’m so looking forward to learning more about Bitcoin. I’ve heard about it but don’t really know much about how it works.

I look forward to seeing everyone this month! Bring a friend, co-worker or grab a stranger! Just kidding! This should be a great event and you can earn CPE credit. See you there!
