The Carpenter’s Boat Shop presents…

The Virtual Speaker Series!

Connect, Learn and Be Inspired

The Virtual Speaker Series began with the intent to gather folks together during the colder months, inspire new learning, and build connections between new and old friends. We shifted to Zoom due to COVID, and the Series has flourished into an amazing gathering of our broadening community. What I love most about the Series is that it puts us in people’s living rooms and kitchens for an hour once a month, widens the spectrum of human experience and connections at the Boat Shop, and of course the smiling faces looking back at one another!
