CBC February After 5 Event

February 27 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This year CBC is trying something different. We have decided to hold some After 5 Events away from our usual venue, and give our members the opportunity to show others what they do.

This month’s A5 event will be held at Pace Pallet Services, where CBC Member, Michael Mourad,will  explain his custom crate and pallet business, and the launch of his new Pace Supacrate.
