I can't think of a more winning conversation than this one: we have land to develop and a broad range of choices and the developer leans in and says - "What would you like to see?" Join East Side Connect! with PAK Properties Thursday and you'll hear Rich Pankonen say just that. This week is also Govt Procurement Fair and we're celebrating our members and the good things they bring at a new level starting today - your featured Member Deal this week is Swede Hollow Cafe! You only turn 30 once - whereas 29,... you know what the East Side REALLY needs to boost small businesses?... Join us!
