Danville By Choice Meet & Greet (Part #1)

We’ve mentioned Danville By Choice a lot here at SouthsideCentral and there’s a good reason for that. It’s a group of people who love living in Danville and aren’t ashamed of saying it. You can become part of the group by “liking” their Facebook page and spreading the word.

On Friday night, Danville By Choice hosted a meet and greet event at 2 Witches Winery & Brewing Company and we had a great time. We’ve got a few PhotoCentral articles coming up filled with photos from the event. Let’s get started with Part #1!
