Our June Afterhours is being sponsored by The City of Okeechobee and will be held at the Okeechobee County Library, 206 S.W. 16th St. from 5 until 6:30 p.m. on June 14. Have you ever had the experience of speed dating? NO? Well this will be a fun event where instead of speed dating, we will be speed networking! A great way for each of us to learn a little more about each person in attendance. We will have cards made up with questions that you can use to ask, or you can prepare some ahead of time, or just use whatever questions come to mind as you meet them. Your choice, just make it fun and informative. Don’t miss out, just plan to come join in the speed networking! We will start a little after 5 p.m. to give everyone time to speed through the conversations with each one attending. I’ll be ringing the bell as you move to the next person. Looking forward to seeing you on the 14th at 5 p.m. Light refreshments will be available. All of our events are open to the public!
