Thanks to Chase’s Hop Shop For a Warm Welcome


Thanks to Chase’s Hop Shop for the warm welcome home for our reading at the shop. The crowd was great as well as the food and drink. This will be our last reading until August and it will be nice to take a break. Thanks to those who attended and to the open mic readers. It was simply a great night of poetry!
