WBOM members and guests enjoyed great conversation at the March luncheon as they got to know each other and their businesses during our networking event.  In addition, WBOM members who brought a guest were placed in a drawing for a ticket St. Margaret's House "Fashioning Our Lives" event.  Sherry Cummings of Ameriprise Financial, was the recipient.  Guests were entered into a drawing for a complimentary WBOM lunch.  The recipient was Pat Hackett of the law firm Hackett and Associates.
