Networking in the Morning!

The Erie Regional Chamber had another fantastic Connect 4 Coffee in May!

Each month, it’s great to spend an early morning learning about businesses in our area. Attendees give a two-minute informal presentation about their business or program – and they can bring business cards, marketing materials, etc. to share with the group. The host provides coffee and breakfast items for the group. Time is left at the end for networking.

A little bit about our host

Extra special thanks to our host, Paul Lorei and Marilee Warner of Lorei Portraits, for their hospitality. Each attendee received a $200 voucher for a studio setting. The photography studio provides artistic and natural portraits of families, children and individuals in the studio, on location and at the beach. They also specialize in one-hour business portraits – including retouching – and delivered digitally.

Here’s just a sample of what we learned this month:

  • Presbyterian SeniorCare Network is hosting a free Car Show on May 20 at its Manchester Commons facility.
  • During a 45-minute salt room session at AKI, you actually breathe in salt air from a special machine that grinds up salt and releases it into the air.
  • Mosquito Hunters of Erie, a brand new business in our area, offers pet-, environment- and people-friendly products to help you take back your yard this summer.

Be a part of our next Connect 4 Coffee at Donatos Pizza, June 12 from 7:30- 9 a.m. Register today or contact Steve Walters for more information.
