Despite snow on the ground and frigid temperatures, nearly 30 Thread STL members and friends gathered at The Pat Connolly Tavern on Wednesday, January 20 to kick off Thread STL’s inaugural year of programming with a Happy Hour. In the words of Thread STL steering committee member Paul Sorenson, Thread STL is a much-needed place for “the connectors to connect.” Indeed, there were many signs of that happening at the event. If the energy and turnout is any indication, Thread STL is off to a great start!
