We apologize for any confusion, but sometimes the Internet does not quite cooperate the way we’d like.

Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to meeting you soon.


We would love to have you join us at our monthly meetings. In order to keep things as simple as possible to remember, we have again decided to continue to meet at the Hamlin Pub at least through June 2013.

We also continue to meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Meeting time is 6PM until approximately 8PM.

From 6 until about 6:30 is gathering/networking time. Following that are announcements and everyone gets about 30 seconds to introduce themselves. After that you can stay and eat, network more etc.

We welcome businesses of all sizes and always encourage our members to bring guests and spread the word. There is no cost to belong at this  time.

Note: ***For weekly updates, business tips and other information, please Like and check our Facebook page, or email us with any questions.

We hope to see you soon!

Please note- due to both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, our November and December meeting schedule is a bit different and we also have some special activities you can participate in as well. Mark your calendar!


Regular meeting but held on November 13th instead of the third Tuesday.
Location: Hamlin Pub corner of 25 Mile and Van Dyke

Time: 6PM – 8PM


Mittens & More Drive

Last year several members had collection bins at their offices/stores to collect winter accessory clothing items (hats, gloves, mittens, scarves) for families in need. This year we are doing it again and we invite you to bring items to the next meeting or you can drop them off at Nietsches’ Market located on Van Dyke just south of 24 Mile in Shelby Twp.

Christmas Party

Flowers & Berries Christmas Wreath

Come deck the halls and jingle some bell! Instead of our regular meeting format this month, we will be having a Christmas party at the Hamlin Pub. While we can still chat about business a bit, we hope this will be a time to enjoy each other’s company, celebrate the holidays and the end of another year.   Spouses/guests/friends are welcome to come.
This will be a paid/ticket event and tickets must be purchased no later than November 13th. Tickets can be purchased at the November 13 meeting, or payment can be sent to Dave Giancola/Custom Insurance.

Please email shelbyareabusiness@yahoo.com if you need more  info about where to send the check.

Happy Fall!

The season has definitely arrived a little quicker than usual here in Michigan hasn’t it? Hopefully this is good news for some of you who look forward to an influx of customers when the weather gets chillier.

Speaking of chillier weather, one of the things we will be talking about/beginning to plan for at this month’s meeting is our Christmas gathering. We will also have a brief presentation from one of our members.

Please join us! And invite friends too!

First, you’ll notice the site looks different. Unfortunately, we’ve had to make some changes, but we hope to have a more robust site up again in the near future. Please see the most recent newsletter for more details as to what happened and why. If you did not get one, please contact us by email and we will give you more information.

Next, we will be meeting twice this month. The first meeting is to help us plan for the future of the group.

Everyone is welcome!

Our regular monthly meeting will be held the following week:

Tuesday August 21st

6PM – 8PM

Location: Hamlin Pub at the corner of 25 Mile & Van Dyke

Again, we hope you can join us at both meetings. If you have any input for what you would like SABA to be or to include, please feel free to email us at shelbyareabusiness@yahoo.com

For both July and August we will continue to meet at the Hamlin Pub. Even though we would love to support other restaurants in the area, we feel that meeting at one place consistently makes it easier to remember where to go from month to month as well as to invite guests.

Speaking of inviting guests, please do!

Time: 6 PM until approximately 8PM

6-6:30 is gathering/networking time so don’t worry if you can’t be there right at 6.
