Thanks to all who attended WCR's first mixer of 2015. Member Jason Jenkins hosted the basketball themed mixer at his bar The Pubb. As spring is finally getting near, it was a great way to celebrate and have fun networking. Just prior to the mixer, a new member orientation was held at Brann's on Leonard. New members got to spend time getting acquainted with president Shelley Frody and some of the other board members. They explained the many benefits of being a WCR member and the opportunities that exist within the organization.
