chamber network event
and in her office Melanie Hughes Davis
was checking that all the emails were sent.
Patty Le Duc - Trish in her best dress
was contacting all of BRAG,
Linda Colton was making sure
the event would NOT be a drag.
The day finally arrived
I was very well prepared
Put on a nice jacket and
even combed my hair
I hoped I would make great contacts
and meet as many as I can
like Briana Koehn, Michael Weatherly
and of course Jackie Rottmann.
The excitement level was high
and the location prepared
snack, drinks and tables
where in place and all set with care.
I walked though the doors
and called out some names
I said Hi Carol Thompson, Hi Michael Regoni and Hi Pamela Abdelnour
I was so glad that they came.
I made sure I had business cards,
and leave behinds to be sharing
who would I meet?
maybe even David M. Beran
Business cards were passed
and phone numbers given to share
what a great way to meet
other business people that care
Suddenly it was announced
That we had run out of time
the 50/50 raffle was drawn
and despite not winning I still had a good time.
Gina Viglione Rieck spoke up and announced
and said with a shout
about many other upcoming events
that we would have to check out
Jenna Daniel (go YoPros) reminded us
of many future event days
with activities and of course drinks
Steve Grogan thought “ I hope IPAs”
Everyone sprang to their cars
and had to get to their work
I thought, to quote Gerard Damian
“Go forth and network!”
Remember for business to thrive
we must all get in the loop
It is a pleasure to be part of
the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce group!
