Networking Chamber Mixer - May 2022
Get ready to draw back the curtain on another great networking get-together! We are looking forward to being at the Vergennes Opera House in May for our month networking mixer. This historic building has had many uses over the years, including being used as a jail! Built in 1897 by, and for the people of Vergennes, it cost $12,000 and took one year to complete. Adorned with the same beautifully painted main stage curtain you see today; it opened its doors and welcomed many famous people including President Taft and Tiny Tim. It hosted political rallies and debates, weddings, school graduations, town meetings, and scores of musical and theatrical performances. In 1901 the Edison Company brought an amazing invention to the Opera House, the Projecting Kinetoscope and showed three short films by the famous director Edwin S. Porter. That was the first-time moving pictures were seen in the Addison County area.
Join us for some conversation as well as some great door prizes sure to entertain you! And of course, our re-imagined Pot of Gold is always a crowd pleaser!
