Membership Meeting

The next meeting of Living Local is July 14, 2014 at 6:30 PM at Center Square Grill (formerly Spoleto Restaurant) in East Longmeadow.

The June meeting was such a success that the Steering Committee decided to have to repeat the "Meet and Greet" format for this upcoming meeting. There will be a cash bar and free appetizers to enjoy while we get to know each other!

We will also be discussing details of our upcoming 2nd Annual It's in the Bag! promotion. Last year's event was a great success.

Deadlines for participation will come very quickly so make sure you get the scoop as to how to participate by attending this next membership meeting on July 14.

Please RSVP to LivingLocalMA@gmail.com if you are planning to attend.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
