Well did you miss me?
I was fortunate last week to have a few days off visiting some friends on the East Coast. My friend Barb is a 15-year breast cancer survivor who has unfortunately just learned the same cancer has returned, this time as lesions on her femur. My prayers are with her.
On a personal note – I want to publicly thank David Evans from It’s All In The Game for his extremely thoughtful gift of a framed photo collage from Dinner on the Diamond 2016. David’s efforts were one of the key components to making this year’s event a success. Thank you David for your memorable gift.
Tonight after work: New Member Ribbon Cutting at Lucidi Distillery in Historic Fire Station No.1 in Old Town Peoria. Join Mayor Cathy Carlat, Councilwoman Vicki Hunt and many Chamber Members in welcoming the Distillery as a new Peoria Chamber member!
If you’re free tomorrow after work, make it a point to join us for a combined Peoria Chamber Mixer with the Surprise Chamber. It’s at the Windmill Inn & Suites on Bell Road and should be a great opportunity for our Peoria members to meet and develop a whole new group of contacts and relationships. Details in the right hand column.
Look for the opening of Modern Round in P83 in the first couple of weeks in June. Construction has been moving pretty quickly and it looks to be almost done. Watch for updates from me but this place looks to be a great place to go. Check them out here: http://www.modernround.com/
Headquarters Grill-Bar-Sushi (http://headquartersaz.com/) is likely right behind with their opening. I know they are moving as quickly as possible to finish their build outs and get things rolling there. They are located across the parking lot from Modern Round and across the street from Harkins Theater.
Arizona United Soccer Team is offering a special discount night to all Chamber Members and their families. The kids get to go down on the field to participate in the “high-five” line with the players. This should be a great fun evening to enjoy for the whole family. Details are to the right.
This weekend is Memorial Day weekend, please be safe and enjoy some wonderful times with your family and friends. While you are enjoying yourselves please take a minute and remember why this holiday was created- to honor all those who have died while serving in our Armed Forces to keep us safe and free. Say a prayer for their sacrifice.
