Meetings are always the second Wednesday of the month from 12-1 pm, locations vary but typically we meet at the Freeport Public Library public meeting rooms and via Zoom.  Meeting formats will vary month-to-month based on topic and availability of a speaker.  Every meeting will have a short time for informal networking.  Lunch is brown bag.  Membership is $25/year.  Women are welcome to attend their first meeting for free with a commitment to join.
