Big smiles from West Seattle Chamber of Commerce CEO Lynn Dennis (above right) and Westside School (WSB sponsor) Head of School Kate Mulligan (above left) tonight, as Westside hosted the Chamber’s monthly “after-hours” meetup at its brand-new “permanent home” in Arbor Heights. Along with updates on Chamber events – 10 spots left in next week’s speed-networking lunch – members in attendance also got the chance to announce what their businesses/organizations are up to. Here’s a special collaboration/donation drive to mark on your calendar:
