Celebrating Women's History Month:
March is Women's History Month and we think there is no better way to honor this month by recognizing women scientists that have made contributions to science.

Second Community Brunch Series:
Our second ever Community Brunch Series was as a big success and we have to thank our community for showing up once again. Our keynote speaker Jenefeness Tucker MBA gave a very informative talk about how to legitimize your business to look more appealing to groups that can give funds. Our performer B.

Lastly, Lizzie Lou's prepared an delectable brunch that had our attendees going back for seconds and thirds.
