Mac & Cheese Mondays

Podcasts | Know Your Neighbor

Community Building is more than just a bricks and mortar address on Main Street – it’s a philosophy of life we share. The Community Building Foundation created a series of get togethers to strengthen relationships and  build awareness of the important work being done by the not-for-profit tenants of the Community and Saranac buildings.

These Mac & Cheese Mondays have given all lot us an opportunity to get to know each other better and enjoy Chef Eric’s  fabulous riffs on traditional mac & cheese at the Saranac Public House.

We thought you might enjoy hearing these short presentations by featured organizations in our community. It’s always great to get to know your neighbors!
