Business After Hours - Waterford UPS March 3, 2009

We arrived just after 6 for the Business After Hours at the Waterford UPS Store and were pleasantly surprised to see how many people were already there, mostly in the back room around the food! Brooke Dyson from Logos Direct and Marge Brown from SendOutCards led the charge.

Sandy Hester, the owner of the UPS Store was our gracious and happy host. Sandy told me that he's gaining new customers daily as well as building stronger continuing relationships with existing customers.

We we headed back to the food, always a priority, NBCC Board Member and President Emeritus (is that the word) came walking out, as usual walking fast and making sure all was going well.

board member Justin Williams, the young guy on the right, was as usual telling us how as a new parent he hasn't slept since November. Sorry, Justin, we're not buying it. In this photo, Tony Vlach and Jim Tuzzeo, with the back of his head to the camera were listening, but clearly not buying it, either.

Board members George Murray and Tony Vlach were a lot of fun. Two good guys.

The group got ready for the actual ribbon-cuttingg, moving toward the front of the store.

Tony Vlach (wow he's in a lot of pictures) and Scott Reeves stood by talking about Leland Under the Lights, our huge car show that this year takes place on September 19th.

Sandy Hester stood his ground and made sure everyone continued to have a good time.

Michael Byrd of WebWright is always dapper.

Terry Grillo, Monica Clark, and Jamie Shoemaker are more great folk who were at the event.

Just after the ribbon cutting George Murray sang to us all. No, not really, when I took this picture he was telling us about The Buckinghams who will be performing on June 20 at the Odell Auditorium.

So, once again, the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce shows up in support of area merchants. I'm really proud to be part of this crowd. Thanks again for the great time!
