BVCC-WSN’s Ladies on the Lake returns

Discern’d Cannabis Purveyors is now open for business in North Grafton.

The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Success Network announces the return of Ladies on the Lake on June 22nd, with a rain date of June 29th, aboard the beautiful Indian Princess docked at Indian Ranch in Webster.
This tranquil networking event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and go until 8:00 p.m. with boarding to begin at 5:45pm. Pre-registration is required, and is open to Members and Future Members of the Chamber. 
This highly anticipated event features a fabulous evening of networking, quintessential hors d’oeuvres, libations and spectacular views. Docked at Indian Ranch, the Indian Princess is a modern day replica of the river boats once seen cruising the Mississippi River. She is one of the few authentic riverboats left in the United States today, using her stern wheels as her only means of propulsion. Cruise with your crew for a unique voyage not to forget! 
“Bring your friends; this one-of-a-kind event is the perfect opportunity for a chance to build new relationships, re-connect with old ones, share resources, and discover new opportunities. Come watch the sun set over Webster Lake, sit back, relax, and cruise with your crew!” said BVCC President and CEO Jeannie Hebert.

The Chamber celebrated a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 18th for the new Discern’d Cannabis Purveyors at 130 Worcester Street in North Grafton.
Discern’d’s goal is to introduce and educate the Blackstone Valley community about the full spectrum benefits of cannabis. Discern’d seeks to educate, curate and cultivate knowledge of cannabis by building a comfortable, approachable space where the community can learn about the myriad ways cannabis can be used to enhance people’s lives. Discern’d’s highly trained staff will take the time to listen to customers’ wants, needs and objectives to provide an assortment of product selections that can optimize their lifestyle.
“I enjoy discussing cannabis with my fellow Chamber members because there’s much intrigue around the industry, and those conversations with business professionals help to further break down stigmas associated with the industry,” Allan Villatoro, MBA, chief executive officer of Discern’d, said. “I look forward to welcoming Blackstone Valley Chamber members and the public into our store where we strive to continue those conversations with our certified cannabis professionals.”
