Dayton SME Chapter 18 Volunteer Dinner Announced

SME Chapter 18 is hosting a dinner at The Brixx Ice Company in downtown Dayton Wednesday Sept. 13th  at 6:30pm for members to learn about the available roles for volunteers. That’s right we are hosting which means food and drinks will be provided. Don’t be afraid as this is not going to be a high-pressure sales pitch to make you volunteer; but we would like to let as many of the chapter members know where we are currently and what we need to do to keep the chapter thriving. (No Dragons game that night so, plenty of parking!)
