Young Professionals take to the park
High Country Young Professionals hit the park next week for their monthly social gathering.
Called "5:01," the meet-and-greet is a way to network with area professionals, and the definition of "young" is loose.
"Our upper age limit ... we don't really have one," president Ryan Postlethwait said. "We say around 40, but we've got a couple board members that are over 40."
You don't have to be a member to network. Nonmembers can participate for $3 and a business card.
The group, which began just more than a year ago as a combined social outlet/network opportunity, is a professional organization that is still discovering ways to get active in the community.
For a $50 annual membership, professionals get free admission to the 5:01 meetings, as well as workshop opportunities.
Next week's 5:01 happens at the Valle Crucis Park Thursday, July 15, starting at 5:01 p.m. Professionals can enjoy the park, play corn hole and ladder golf, while making friends and business contacts in the community.
Can't make it Thursday? The next 5:01 happens Aug. 12 at 5:01 at Peppers Restaurant.
