Chamber Networking Breakfast Scares Up Business

 Jason’s Deli was abuzz bee-fore the Chamber’s Networking Breakfast even started, when Tracey Harmeier with Touchstone arrived. She was a busy bee stuffing the goody bags for the 92 business professionals who attended. Then ghosts of Halloween past arrived, otherwise known as adults who refuse to relinquish their childhood roots. The intention of the Halloween theme was to scare up business with its “Chamber of Horrors.”

Looking utterly bewitching was team Leader, Janet Levesque of JC’s Chem-Dry, and past team leader, David Dewhurst of Prosperity Living. Breakfast team member, J. J. Kuykendall of Cruise Planners, insisted that she was wearing her jammies, but we suspect she earned her stripes when she was sold down the river.

Some familiar faces in the crowd…Chris O’Rourke of Outback Western Wear, came dressed as a handsome cowboy (not too much of a stretch,) and Kristy Villarreal, the Chamber’s past Director of Membership and now a realtor with BMG Properties, was not in costume but said being a mommy again within twenty months was scary enough. Tony “Flash Gordon” Motto was in and out in a flash, in between Sculp-tours. Pretty in pink???  Taxes on Track, Jeff Hutton, CPA, & wife, Lucille. And who was that behind those Foster Grants? I suspect it was Ann Engelbrecht of Sprout Fine Floral Concepts and the Chamber’s sales associate, Kathleen Harris. Peace to you too. Election year is always scary, but the only candidate who showed up was Pat Klem for the CISD school board.

Voted “Best in Show” was Scooby Doo, alias Jay Kirsch of Barker Street Gourmet Dog Bakery and Boutique. Barker Street was featured as the monthly ‘Spotlight Table,’ and Jay did a doggone good job presenting his business, which incidentally, was a finalist for Best Small Business in Montgomery County last year, as awarded by the Small Business Administration.

The most frightening commercial was Ann Willis with the Pregnancy Assistance Center North (PACN), talking about socially communicable diseases, but the ‘bag lady’ with the least lavish costume, Suzanne Kulka of Mike Kulka Allstate Insurance Company, won the coveted award for the “Best 60-second commercial,” Scariest of all was Father Christmas (Stage Right promoting  “Christmas Belles” at the Crighton Theater, Dec. 3-19),  with a grim reminder that Christmas is just 67 days away.
