2015 KUBA Annual Meeting Highlights

 In Annual Meeting

The 2015 Kingston Uptown Business Association (KUBA) Annual Meeting was held on March 18 at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center, who kindly allowed us to use the Ginni Apuzzo Hall for the event.

The first order of business, of course, was mingling and renewing acquaintances. The amazing food for the event was graciously donated by Boitson’s, Dallas Hot Weiner, Ecce Terra, Santa Fe, and Yum Yum. A variety of wines and prosecco were generously provided by JK’s Wine & Liquor. Floral arrangements were donated by Petalos Floral Design.
