We now have a name. From here on we are called the “Second Circle.” We’ll explain its origin and meaning at the next few meetings.

Please join us if you are a local business person or active in local social media. Can you think of a better way to spend a Wednesday night? Plus you can enjoy a selection craft beers made at the location. There is no fee to attend the event…your only cost is your own beverage.

Corporate sponsors this month include Pure n Simple Natural Foods, S J Barakony of Service Before Self Leadership and our hosts, Don and Liz Staas.

We will again have announcements and the usually unpredictable business card drawing. If you wish to donate a gift for the drawing, let me know.
We start at 6 PM and network for about 50 minutes. We have announcements, do some prize give aways and then network some more!

Thanks to the 24 who attended and made the October event another fine one. Since they do not serve food on the premises, a group of us will again go to a local restaurant after. (All are welcome.)

PREMIER Networking Event Recap (March 19, 2014)

image Our third event of 2014 defies description. I am truly stunned by the turnout and level of excitement we had Wednesday night.

I want to extend a big, deep and heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended. Without every one of you and your enthusiasm, these events would not have taken off and become “the thing” to do on a third Wednesday in Delaware!

Here’s what happened…. We had people actually show up early! Our normal start time is 6pm and we had 10 folks already there before then. When I totaled up attendance, an amazing 31 people had signed in.

image

We networked for about one hour and then did announcements and prize drawings. Our sponsors this month all said a few words and gave some updates (Ohio Machine, D. J. Young, attorney (Firestone, Brehm, Wolf, Whitney & Young), The Boy Scouts and DelawareO.

During the networking time, we got a first hand glimpse of technology in action. Mike Cairns of Infinite Impact demonstrated aerial photography. He took one picture indoors and then sent up a drone to photograph the water tower.

The Boy Scouts Scouts of America Simion Kenton Council donated two tins of popcorn, Alpha Group donated a mug and coaster made at their workshop and Mark Schreiber donated the prize of the evening – a $125 certificate to get your CCW permit. (And Mark extended an offer good to all attendees – $50 off of his March 29th class. Contact him to reserve your spot in class.)

After the networking, many of us remained and had dinner. I had the country fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans and extra gravy (of course). If you have not been to the Corner Café in Delaware in a while, I suggest giving them a try. They are good people serving good food in a comfortable atmosphere.

Please keep spreading the word about this monthly event. It is free to attend and is open to any business person, those active in local social media or anyone wanting to get out meet fellow “locals.” The next three months we will be at Barley Hopsters downtown…an even better reason to get out and network!
