All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

July 31, 2016

When our previous off-site meeting place, Firewood, unexpectedly closed in December, we managed to locate a suitable venue at Marzano’s on Route 31; we had previously held some January meetings there.

But once again, we’re looking for an Association meeting site. Marzano’s is under new management, and the cost of using a banquet room is ridiculous — for us, anyway.

If you know of any local establishments with really inexpensive conference rooms, please contact us. We need a new one!

Rumor has it that the former Firewood will be reopening as a sports bar, but we don’t know if they will still be making rooms available for meetings.

For more information, see , or call 800.334.7661 (“800-Edison-1”, if you’ve got the time to find those tiny letters on your phone) and ask to speak with a “Vegetation Management representative”.
