Meetings and Other Chamber Business
Lynnette Bramley

The February 9th Meeting was held at The Huntsburg Community Center.  The Meeting format was "Round Table Talks".  That is always a popular meeting and lots of discussion held during this meeting. It was fun and friendly, with lots of thought going on to help each other with any trouble areas. The room was full of experienced people, who are willing to share solutions.  Lunch was catered by Chow Down, and it was delicious. Welcome and Membership Plaques were given to our new members: Smylies, LLC in Parkman, owners Alan and Dawn Mighton, and Ohio Means Jobs - Geauga County Job and Family Services Director Margo Reda.

 A Celebrate with Our Members Meeting is being planned for June.  Do you have any milestones, birthdays, anniversaries, goals, etc.?  Please let us know at the Chamber Office, so your reason to celebrate can be added to the growing list (440-632-5705 or mccinfo@middlefieldcc.com).
