Thanks for a great Mappy Hour!

On Wednesday, January 28th we had our first Mappy Hour at Griffin Map Design. Esther Mandeno of Digital Mapping Solutions did a great write-up on it at http://digitalmappingsolutions.com/2015/01/30/mappy-hour/. So rather than repeating her words we are just going to say thanks to all who attended and look for another one in the months ahead.
