Harvest Business Mixer

Celebrate Think Local First Day with us on Thursday, November 17!

In recognition of all TLF has achieved in its 9 years, the City and County have proclaimed November 17 as Think Local First Day! Let’s celebrate the official proclamations and tributes to TLF’s founders with great food, beer, wine and dancing.

Plus you’ll get to pick TLF’s new leaders! Co-chair Peter Beckmann is stepping down and there’s a vacancy, so you’ll be choosing some new leaders for the board. Vote in an election where all the candidates are outstanding!

Also looking to the future, TLF will be introducing its terrific new Membership Director, Liz Kroft. Find out how she’s kicking TLF into high gear.

Want to give your pitch 50,000 watts of power? During the Mixer, members can take the mic at the most powerful radio station in the County.

See you on the KSCO/KOMY Party Patio for a sunset over the bay.
