News from the Executive Director
February is carrying us to the half way point of our winter season and thanks to our Ground Hog friend in PA, we will be talking of spring soon. To quote our “GOT” friends, I’m hoping that it’s not the beginning of WINTER IS COMING for our sports teams!
I know I’m deviating from my chamber topics here but is anyone else concerned about the state of affairs with our sports teams? The Patriots don’t make the Super Bowl and there’s talk Tom Brady may leave; the Red Sox trade Mookie Betts and a starting pitcher for prospects, they have no manager and the equipment truck has already arrived in Ft Meyers. The Bruins & Celtics – big questions marks!
So, we kicked the month off with our first Thursday of the month Breakfast Club at
. The morning weather was quite stormy but as it turned out, it was one of the best attended breakfast gatherings we have had in a while. I truly enjoyed seeing 30–35 members, and now friends, mingling together discussing their businesses while sharing coffee and breakfast.
