It was a great turn out Sunday, Jan. 30, 2022, as nearly 250 people headed out to the Mob Museum for the Emerging Professionals Social.

Situated in a three-floor historical U.S. Post Office and Courthouse built in 1933, the Mob Museum is full of historical relics from the olden days of bootlegging and organized crime. Attendees were treated to food and drinks as they walked the halls of this one-of-a-kind museum.

Recognition awards were given out in the evening to the volunteers who helped with the Explosives Everyday! project, including: Jim Redyke, Roberto Folchi, Ron Gilbert, Mark Johnson, Amanda Mclean, Tassilo Baur, Richard O'Meara, Jim Daley, Jason Baird, Brian Gorsage, Mark Ganster, Kyle Perry, Jerry Wallace, Kristen Kolden, Jared Redyke, Chuck Dowding, Cathy Aimone-Martin, Joseph Meyers, Ralph Burnham, Kelly Ratliff, Kristie Bishop, Brian Lewis, Johan Gjodvad and Drew Martin. Alastair Torrance was recognized for his role as the series host, and Travis Davidsavor was recognized for his contribution as project lead and moderator for each episode.
