Red Hook Business Cocktail Mixer

When: Sep 9, 2019 6:00-8:00 pm

Where: 106 Ferris Street Brooklyn, NY 11231

Greetings, Red Hook Businesses! Thanks to all of you who have attended Red Hook business meetings thus far. I know that many of you were out of town for the last meeting (on 8/7), but I wanted to take the opportunity to share the meeting minutes so that those of you who want to stay involved can catch up. Perhaps the most significant thing that was accomplished at this last meeting was the creation of committees, which will focus on specific areas of interest. We encourage as much participation in these committees as possible. Please let us know if you are interested in joining any of the following committees, and we will loop you in on conversations!
