Hosted by Asbury Woods

We had a capacity crowd at Asbury Woods for our first networking event of 2019. The Nature Center is in the historic cottage on the grounds and provided the perfect space for members to meet, mingle, and share what's happening in their organizations. 

A bit about our host:

Asbury Woods consists of 205 acres of preserved property which includes native species, old-growth forests, landscaped gardens, wetlands, boardwalk trails, and dirt trails. Dr. Otto Behrend, whose photo hangs above the fireplace at the Nature enter, left his 100-acre Asbury Farm, cottage, barn (now known as Asbury Barn), fields and orchards to the Millcreek Township School District for educational and recreational uses when he passed. The historic cottage is a resource for the entire community to hold events and celebrations.

What we learned about some of our members:

  • The American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days are coming (a sign of spring!).
  • Caregivers from Senior Helpers are available to care for people 18 years and older, not strictly elder care.
  • Cannon's Chophouse has 3 locations currently + one on the way, 15 different house wines (not just a red or a white) and offers off-site catering
  • B.F. Fields Moving and Storage has been in business since 1905 and began with two horses and a cart
  • Mark your calendars for EmergyCare's annual Garage Gala set for April 26th

We'll be at the Erie Masonic Temple downtown for our February Connect 4 Coffee. See you there!
