Kicking Off Summer with EforAll

We had a perfect evening for celebrating entrepreneurship and summer in our beloved Merrimack Valley yesterday.  The EforAll Summer 2016 Kickoff at the Greater Lawrence Community Boathouse. There was good food and good company and lots and lots of networking.

There were boat rides and games and temporary tattoos and I even saw some people dancing to a Latin beat.

Multi-talented EforAll Marketing Manager Andy Vargas demonstrated 21st century DJing -- just plug that phone into the sound system and presto, you've got a party.

The Party Connection served up the beverages, including adult beverages.

The boat rides on the river were very popular. The boat could accommodate 10 at a time. Everybody wore life jackets.

People were snapping up burgers and dogs as soon as they came off the grill.
The kids took advantage of the volleyball net for both volleyball and some game I'd never seen before involving getting a football over the net.
I couldn't get a photo of the bubble machine, but I did get the temporary tattoo guy to pose for me.

Did I mention I met the Zen Fuddhist? We had a great conversation about food and Lowell and all that good stuff.

The crowd was buzzing all evening. Lots and lots of networking going on.
The river was looking so beautiful it was hard to leave.
