HUNA Hop SPRING 2015 Edition

Looking for level of interest and anyone who maybe interested in Hosting and participating in a Spring HUNA Hop. For those not familiar, this is a social event where 3 residents of Uptown open their homes for an hour/hour and a half for beverages and snacks and we move as group from house to the next- We have had a lot of fun and neighborly engagement with these in the past- so much so that in November many participants said “we should do this in the spring too” so here goes…. At this point we are looking for interested individuals/members to host, help organize, and execute. We are looking at possible dates of Saturday May 9 or May 16. The suggestion has been made that this could be an earlier start, possible 4pm start? Cost and other details are TBD based on feedback.
Email HUNAJames@gmail.com with any questions you may have. Thanks!
