FNA Winter Networking/Happy Hour Event

6-8 p.m.
Mon., Feb. 6
Pig & Fiddle
3812 W. 50th St.

Register here for the Fulton Networking/Happy Hour Event.

Over the past couple of years, FNA has sponsored networking events to help people come together over a common interest, meet new neighbors and connect with other Fulton residents. Our most popular event to date was Happy Hour at Pig & Fiddle, so we have decided to do another one! Join us on Mon., Feb. 6, 6-8 p.m. in the side room at Pig & Fiddle for a free beverage and some tasty appetizers.

There is no cost to attend, but we ask that you pre-register so we can be prepared. Attendance is limited due to space constraints, so register early! We are hoping to sponsor further Happy Hour gatherings throughout the year.
