Jester King Recap

Thank you for those who came to DWA’s family-friendly event at Jester King last Friday! It was a nice, mellow gathering; we had handcrafted pizza from Stanley’s Farmhouse and enjoyed some craft beer as well! The weather was mildly cool and perfect…. thank goodness for no rain! Whew. Even the children enjoyed exploring and frolicking in the grassy field!  Overall, it was a good evening for everybody!




We asked some ladies to jot down their interests/ideas for DWA’s future events- we are already looking forward to hosting our next event soon! We will keep you posted after our board meeting at the end of this month.

Here’s a quick video of the event at Jester King!

Again, thank you for coming! :)
