Message from the President
“Hats, Handbags & Horses” is Saturday at the Crowne Plaza from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m.  Join us for a wonderful event with mint juleps, high tea, pastries, networking, silent auction, hat and bowtie contest, and live viewing of the Belmont Stakes at 6:50 p.m.  We have a special presentation by Cottonways showing a ward-robing demonstration (how to make multiple outfits out of a few key pieces) and enjoy fabulous desserts made by Debbie Buza.  A huge thank you to Nora Marek of Melbourne Home Staging for putting together all the beautiful baskets for our silent auction.  There will be a lot of great items available to bid on at the event.

If you have never attended a Leads Group, visit the Power Partners Leads Group on Monday at the Chamber office from 11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Tony Castillo runs the group and they have an education piece, member spotlight and lead generation time.  See if this group might work for you.  Cost is only $25 for the year.

Finally, we have the “5 Keys to Make the Money you want and the Difference you want in Less Time and with Less Effort”.  Marty Ward, Transformation Strategist, at the Chamber office from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m., presents this event. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Nancy Peltonen
