After Hours at Sunday Cider Was a Hit!

We had a great turnout for the After Hours event at Sunday Cider! The weather cooperated, the award winning cider was delicious, and the tasty food from Smitty's Oyster House Food Truck filled us up! 

The band, Raw Honey provided a beautiful musical backdrop to the evening. 

Many businesses popped in during the course of the evening. We saw lots of new connections being made! 

A big thanks to Patrick & Clinton for being superb hosts!
