JOHNSTOWN — Members of the Fulton County Young Professionals Network and the public gathered for a meet-up event Wednesday at Fox Run Golf Club.
The event included a free lesson donated by PGA Professional Rich Scott, who worked one-on-one with attendees on putting and chipping. Attendees also headed to the Fox Run Country Club dining room for food catered by the club, drinks at the bar and conversation.
According to Sam Zimmerman, chairman for the FMYPN, the event was the first of a new series of “experiential” meet-up opportunities.
“It’s an activity to try to get people out of their comfort zone a little bit,” Zimmerman said. “Instead of sitting around and having a happy hour drink we’re actually doing something. The turnout is pretty good.”
Zimmerman said the group has plans for more events, such as a day at the track, a kayak day at a new business along the Mohawk River, a tasting at Roger’s Cideryard in Johnstown.
“All these businesses are members of the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce, so one way to support them is to get people out to them,” Zimmerman said.
The FMYPN was established in 2015. For more information, search for the group on Facebook or email staff liaison Nicole Walrath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
