Networking doesn’t get much better than this! Member social wrap-up


Twenty people joined Access Rec last Thursday for our first member social: Sunset Moves & Cruise! Many thanks to Caitlyn Ridgely and the staff at Piers Park for hosting us at their beautiful facility, and to Kerry Thompson from Silent Rhythms for sharing her journey into dance and sharing strategies for supporting people who are deafblind! We shared a lot of laughs at our collective lack of rhythm, enjoyed a sail on a gorgeous (although windless) evening, had great food and drinks, and most of all, built connections to help everyone do their jobs just that much better. We hope you’ll join us next time!

Not quite a night for racing, but it allowed for great conversation!

Sailing, networking, food and drinks… and you don’t even have to be in charge? DSC07937
We can’t think of anything else we’d rather do after a long day!

As the professionals who help other people play, it’s critical that we take time to renew ourselves, get new ideas, and connect with others! Join Access Recreation Boston for a members-only evening of sailing on the harbor, networking, and some delicious appetizers and drinks when we’re done. We’ve got a special guest to get your creativity moving as well!
