Category Archives: Monthly Meeting Information

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!

Tuesday October 16th from 6PM to 8PM

Hamlin Pub at the corner of 25 & Van Dyke.

If you have questions feel free to contact us!

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!

Full details are:

Date: Tuesday July 17th

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.

Place: Hamlin Pub at the corner of 25 & Van Dyke


See you there!
