Spring Fling Social May 11

Whatcom Women’s Network (WWN) invites the business community to its sixth annual Spring Fling Social on Thursday, May 11, from 5-7 p.m., at Sustainable Connections, 1701 Ellis St., Suite 221, in Bellingham.

The social is an informal event meant to introduce visitors to the professional women of WWN and their businesses, as well as for WWN members to network with visitors. Guests also can learn more about membership in the networking group.

“We are actively recruiting more members to our group,” said WWN Director Virginia Malmquist, “but, more importantly, we think it’s beneficial to step outside the boundaries of our group to connect with the larger community.”

Appetizers and refreshments will be available at this free event, which will also include door prizes.

Fifteen women, each with a different profession, are members of the organization. Some of the business categories represented by WWN members include weight loss coaching, counseling, photography, real estate, mortgages, insurance, financial planning, accounting and legal services.

WWN will not meet for its regular noon meeting May 11, the day of the social.
