Social Media Breakfast Maine (SMBM) celebrated its 75th monthly event with its once-a-year wine-and-cheese rather than eggs-and-bacon soiree. Red Thread hosted the party, with presentations made by Mike Sobol of Venture Hall, Kyle Poissonier of Catalyst for Change Wear, and SMBM organizer Amanda O’Brien. The next breakfast is Nov. 18.
