As the snow falls lightly outside, it's nice to be thinking ahead to spring. We are excited to see our calendar filling up with a host of meaningful programs and events.
We truly have a mix of new and traditional programs on the agenda, but even the traditional have some unique new aspects to them.
First up is our inaugural "March Madness Bracket Challenge". The brainchild of our Young Professional group, we are inviting all members to participate by filling out a bracket for the men's college basketball tournament. If you've ever done it, you know that being a basketball geek is not a requirement. If you've never done it, give it try. We will get together for a Viewing Party at Irish Brewing Boston on March 23 to watch the Sweet 16 round, sip some local brews and talk trash.
On March 28 we are bringing together town administrators from our communities to talk about what's happening in our region. They will share updates on economic development, housing, transportation and other matters of importance to local business. You won't want to miss this.
Next up on April 10 we will gather with folks from 10 other Chambers in Southeastern Mass. to celebrate opening day of horse racing at Plainridge Part Casino. This event draws hundreds of people to enjoy food, drink, networking and maybe a little gambling.
Finally, Restaurant Week returns April 30 through May 4. There will be much more to come on that, but mark your calendar now and make plans to support our local restaurants.
