On Tuesday, June 27, 2017 members of Lower Merion Community Network (LMCN) gathered for their fifth annual Summer Connection Event at Sontuosa BYOB Restaurant, a new eatery in Bryn Mawr Village. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous menu prepared by Chef/Owner/Visionary Ernesto Guzman. LMCN was founded in 2010 by Belmont Hills resident Karen Ebbert, as a group on Facebook to create a supportive online and real world community that would benefit local businesses and residents. The group has grown to a membership of over 16,000 members, serving as a resource and place to bring out the community in all of us. Bob Coleman, Stacy Harbaugh, Seth Samuel, Jamie Moss and Zack Samuel attended the event.
