Laughter filled the air as people schmoozed, networked, met new friends and caught up with old ones at the Phoenix clothing store in Dingmans Ferry.

TriVersity sponsored Saturday’s “Meet and Mingle,” serving up hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, mixes, and juices.

TriVersity president Stephen Teague and vice-president Simone Kraus greeted guests in the side yard. The attendees, all vaccinated, enjoyed music provided by Dan Engvaldson, who sang and played guitar.
