A big thank you to all the great businesses that turned out, donated and networked together at the BABA Annual Dinner . . .
Here are some highlights of the evening:
Our guest speaker, Heather Hoell, Director of Venture Portland, updated us on the Comp Plan from her perspective and her involvement on the mixed use zoning committee. Then went home with this gift certificate from Belmont Area Business District favorite: Portland Nursery.
New client relationships were made for several great local businesses including Absolutely You Salon owner and stylist posing with their newest clients for 2015.
And new BABA members made great first impressions. Much thanks to Sustainably Organized for making this Advantis Banker’s day with hours of professional organizing to look forward to in 2015.
So much to look forward to in 2015, including a new local district grant program. Join us at the next BABA business meeting (2nd Thursday of every month – Belmont Firehouse – 35th and Belmont 9-10:30am) or at the next BBB (Belmont Business Beverage) to find out more.
A great way to network . . .
