Thursday Gathering

December 20, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST


It’s that time of year when we reflect on what we’ve accomplished and start thinking about what we want to accomplish in 2019.  It is always our goal to be better citizens,  and strengthening our social impact year after year. Join us to learn from others who have made an impact in 2018 so we can all start 2019 a little better off.
