Chamber Mixer a success
Yesterday's joint mixer of the Woodstock and the Crystal Lake Chambers of Commerce was a great success. Family Health Partnership Clinic sponsored it, and business members from both chambers attended.
Pictured is the interim Executive Director of the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce, Tom Sagendorf.
Co-emcee for the mixer was Rick Schildgen (CL Graphics), an Ambassador of the Crystal Lake Chamber, who was sporting his "Ambassador-green" jacket. Rick told me that his chamber has approximately 25 Ambassadors, who act as liaison between members and the Chamber office.
If you weren't there, you missed the tastiest treats that I've had at a chamber mixer - ever. Josh Humphrey (Sam & Harry's, Schaumburg) and Scott McClain (Midwest Outdoor Kitchens, Inc., Lake Barrington) wowed guests with hot culinary delights, and Carrie Curie (SweetPea Cakes) brought awesome treats for dessert.
Folks did a pretty good job of staying on their feet, mixing around and swapping business cards. That's what a mixer is for - meet business people you don't know yet and trade cards, and renew past acquaintances and trade business cards.
