Tech Valley Connect Networking Dinner

On July 12th, Tech Valley Connect hosted a social networking dinner for our newly relocated families to meet one another at the Glen Saders Terrace in Scotia. A cocktail reception prior to the dinner was held for an opportunity for introductions. Along with our families, many of our Board members attended to help welcome the newcomers. A New England Nanny provided childcare in another room with age appropriate activities to keep the children engaged and entertained, while their parents mixed and mingled. The event was a huge success, with many asking for more events similar to this one. They enjoyed meeting one another and it was nice for them to find others who are sharing a similar experience in the stresses and adventure in relocation.

Please note: We will soon be announcing a calendar of events for our families to participate in.
