Networking & Blue Jays Game – September 21st

Almost 90 members from NAYGN Chalk River, Kinetrics, Bruce Power, UOIT and Durham chapters came out for a regional networking session. Members got to know each other and also filled in postcards advocating for nuclear in preparation for Post Card Push Day. Afterwards, the group made its way down to the Rogers Centre to watch the Blue Jays take on the Tampa Bay Rays. Even though the Jays failed to win the game, the event was still a success with members already looking forward to the next regional event.
