What a great way to finish your Ventura ArtWalk weekend–with a Sunday Oct.17 7pm gathering of Ventura Linchpins at Candlelight on Santa Clara at Figueroa followed by dinner at one of their long tables!

An important element of being a Linchpin is “shipping”–not just thinking about doing something but actually doing it.
Ventura’s Linchpins are doing some serious shipping. They’re not just talking, they’re taking action.
