The Monadnock Collaborative Business After Hours
On July 19th, RiverMead hosted the monthly Business After Hours Event sponsored by the Monadnock Collaborative. This event is an opportunity that allows business owners and local professionals to connect and share about upcoming events regarding their businesses in our community. There was a raffle, and the RiverMead culinary team provided delicious food and drinks. This gathering allows chamber members to meet other local professionals and connect with those with similar interests.
