On Thursday, May 7th, Socket officially launched a free wireless hotspot in Memorial Park, near downtown Fulton. And what better way to do that than with a party?

Socketeers, Chamber members and Fulton residents all came out for free food and raffles, while kids enjoyed the bouncehouse and nearby splash park. Luckily, the weather stayed mostly sunny and warm - and when a twenty-minute downpour struck, the kids seemed to enjoy it just as much as the other entertainment!

Congratulations to Chris McLay, Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Award Winner for April!

Originally from Iowa, Chris has lived in Columbia for over 22 years, aside from the few years spent in Linn, MO while attending Linn Tech. He considers Columbia “the only town I call home.”
