Join us each Thursday at 11am on the Gardner Realtors Facebook page for a Facebook Live hangout as we celebrate local people, businesses, & organizations who will share their talent with us followed by an interactive Q&A. We’ll be bringing you live chats and demonstrations with some of the most talented people from all over our local community. Think athletes, chefs, designers, doctors, artists, etc. Our goal is to connect you to the amazing talent that exists in our community even while we socially distance.
