 Dear Friends,

Would you like to participate in a Women's West Side & Oak Park area business networking breakfast group?

We'll meet at Alice's Restaurant, 5638 W. Chicago Avenue, one Monday per month at 8:00 am.

I'm envisioning a small to medium group, no reservations necessary - purchase your own breakfast if you attend, and simply share information about what you are up to in the community.

Just breakfast - sharing stories, gaining support, and building community through women who get the job done.

First breakfast will be at 8:00 am on Monday, February 4th.   We'll keep it to one hour.

Business opportunities for all will grow naturally from this group!!! 

Please reply if you are interested.  And let's expand this email list as well to include more women.

Thank you!

Dawn

Hello Dawn! My name is Lilangel Logan, I'm new to living in the Austin area (little over a year now!). I've just read about your first Women's West Side & Oak Park Networking Group meeting on February 4th and how well it went! I'm just starting to get involved locally, and would love to be apart of such a wonderful event. I love the idea of interacting and communicating with other women in the area trying to make a difference in their own way.
