We hosted our first in-person / virtual networking breakfast in multiple rooms at the wonderful Lures Bar and Grille in Crownsville. The in-person attendees were in a large heated tent and served a delicious breakfast of bagels, pancakes and tacos for breakfast. It was great to be in person and hear the laughs and chatter at this busy event. We also proposed a virtual component.

On April 14, we celebrated the inauguration of our new business in Severna Park, Severna Park tutoring and educational advocacy, located on Benfield Road. Delightful team of husband and wife John and Sara Miller have lived in the area for over 10 years and have decided to start a business focused on education. During the well-attended celebration, we met the Millers, their children and their parents, who recently moved here.

Our second ribbon cut of the month celebrated the first anniversary of Therapeutic massage and therapeutic wellness center with thyme in Annapolis, and their business partnership with Refill Goodness of Maryland.
