We want to take a minute to wish everyone a happy new year and thank you for your support last year!

An especially big thanks for your support at the December YPN, where we were able raise $141.35 for the Adopt a Family program through the Children’s Foundation of Guelph!

We also want to invite you to our first YPN of 2014! It is taking place next Tuesday, January 14th at Sapphire Cafe & Lounge from 5-7pm at 17 Macdonell St, downtown Guelph!

Sapphire Cafe & Lounge is a great new local business! They are hosting a very special event for us; they will be serving delicious goodies to try and it will be a private event for YPN only 🙂

New members that have never attended a YPN are still very much welcome and encouraged to attend the event! The private event just means that the restaurant will not be open for the general public to come in and eat.

Come on out and make the first YPN event of the year a great success!
