Naperville's Neighbor to Neighbor Network

 

March Meeting Tackles Home Improvement

With Spring finally upon us, for many homeowners thoughts will turn to improvement projects, both inside and outside our homes. Our March 23rd meeting (8 AM in the Municipal Center lunchroom) will feature a dialogue on avoiding home improvement project pitfalls, whether they be legal, contractual, or just questions and uncertainties in the planning of project scope and breadth.

Plan to join us for this timely, interesting and interactive discussion that will provide tips and advice on how to make your projects the best they can be.

We hope to see you at 8 AM for coffee and networking. As always, we promise the meeting will close by 10 so we can all get back home to take care of what needs to be done.
