What a great week we've had here in Champaign County. So much so, I just had to share it. As you may be aware, we are working on developing a BNI (Business Networking International http://www.bni.com/ ) chapter in Champaign County. Monday I had lunch with an up & coming young man in the community, Adam Erwin, with Ohio National Financial Services, one of the top rated insurance companies in the country. It was great to get to know him and what he has to offer. He is very eager to meet with people, learn all he can about his industry and to grow his business. Tuesday morning was our weekly BNI meeting at Verde's at 7:30 am. We have a great bunch of positive people who are eager to get to know each other and pass referrals to each other. We still need a variety of businesses to join our group - if you know of a business that is also positive and wants to grow, have them contact me or join our group on Tuesday morning. Visitors are very welcome.
I also had lunch this week with a BNI member from the Logan County chapter of which I was a part of for the last two years. Susan Lahman is a representative for Premier Jewelry. I very much enjoyed talking to her about jewelry, our families and antiques. We ate at the Cream & Sugar in West Liberty, a favorite spot for me, and Susan grew up in West Liberty, so she enjoyed coming back into town.
On the fax this week was a signed proposal for another barn floor - over 3500 square feet of concrete. Nice to put another job onto the job board before the cold weather sets in. Thank you to EVCO Structures out of Mechanicsburg for the work. We enjoy working with you.
This morning my day started at the Coffee Depot for the Champaign County Chamber's First Friday coffee hour. The place was packed with local businesses eager to be a positive part of the county and to share in the events & activities. A new restaurant has opened in Urbana, Nonesuch Fare, on the west end of town in the old Michael's Pizza building, and a new store will be opening soon downtown selling organic and health items. Congratulations to both businesses. It is very fun and exciting for me to meet new people and to re-connect with ones I have already met.
While at the Depot I was handed an Award of Commendation from C&N Industrial Contractors, Inc. They received an award from Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. for work done on the Springfield Museum of Art, and we were one of their subcontractors. Congratulations on this fine work and for allowing Yoder Concrete Construction, LLC, to be a part of it.
Tonight is our Sunday school class's Christmas party. I am looking forward to spending time with friends and eating good food as well. Tomorrow is the Cancer Society's Candlelight Tour of Homes in Champaign County. I can't wait to see the historic homes decorated for Christmas.
I hope you had a great week as well. May you have a good weekend, and I will talk to you again soon!
