(Salvy the Florist) and committee members Joe Scianatico (Salem Five), Jim Reese (Welch Florist) and Andrew Nazzaro (KW Insurance) have been working to create a series of networking events and substantive workshops tailor made for a younger generation ages 25 – 45 years old but all members and non-member business owners and employees are always invited.
