About a dozen Appalachian members celebrated November at Bear Waters Brewing in Canton. Both the food and drink were good, as they have a kitchen and a brewery in the building.

Folks drifted in and out, so the number varied throughout the evening, and we had the usual mix of new and veteran members. Because it's low-key, this is often the first event that new members attend.

Our next mixer will be Wednesday, December 20 at Mills River Brewing. It starts at 5:00, but stop in any time between then and about 7:00.
