What's New at N.E.W.

October 17, 2017


Presidential Ponderings

Fall is in the air and your Board has been in full swing preparing for the season and YOU are the ones that will be harvesting the fruits of our labors ...

... In October, we scare you senseless with the Monster Bash and then we lend a helping hand at Housing Families First.

... In November, we give you a preview of our upcoming PDW to maximize your business's Facebook presence and we take a deeper look into the lives of one of our members through the Who kNEW part of our luncheon.

... In December, shop till you drop at our luncheon and enjoy the holidays by joining us on the Tacky Lights Tour on
December 12th.

Are you getting the most from your membership? I certainly am and look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming events!
