NYP’s Happy Hour at Gordo’s and “Thanks for Giving”

Fun-loving Norwood Young Professionals are up to some good again. For fun, everyone's invited to join them at Gordo’s at 4328 Montgomery Rd. (across from the Norwood Public Library) tomorrow, Friday, for another of their happy Happy Hour events starting at 5:30 p.m. The good part is they’ve organized an exciting philanthropic event they’ve named “Thanks for Giving” to benefit local residents during the upcoming winter. They’ve made it super easy for all of us to help out, and it will be very impact to some of our own Norwood residents. Following is a flyer that explains “Thanks for Giving.”
