Letter to the editor: Village pres. recommends coffee club

August 11, 2010 - Dear editor,

I've always been concerned for the health of our village businesses. In my many conversations with business owners I try to keep in mind the organizations, groups and committee resources that are in place and available to help them. One resource I recently discovered is the Friday morning "Coffee Talk." Business owners meet at the Culvers on M-24 at 7:30 a.m. to network.

Each has a chance to do a one-minute elevator speech about their offerings, and then they network some more. Just as simple as that, clean and easy.

What a great time I had meeting the approximately 40 plus business owners in attendance.

They were from Clarkston, Orion, Oxford, and Rochester. I was impressed with the number and array of businesses represented.

I heartily recommend that all business owners take advantage of this great opportunity to meet others in this and the wider community by participating in this well-run event hosted by Sherman Publications. I'll look forward to hearing their feedback.
