March 10 – Roxy and Duke’s event

Andrea, I just want to thank you and the Board again for another amazing event at Roxy & Duke’s Saturday Night.  Not only is it always a great Venue but the Band was amazing and really kept the crowd engaged.
The food was as always great, but the time spent bonding with my fellow EO’ers is just another reminder why I love EO and what the NJ chapter does for us.
Thanks for always delivering good events like Saturdays.
