North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours, Sponsored by Carolina Roofing and HydroStop

Well we had another great turnout at the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours Friday late afternoon and evening. Sponsored by Carolina Roofing and HydroStop roof sealing , approximately 100 folks laughed, talked, ate, talked, won prizes, ate, and laughed some more.

Below NBCC volunteers Sharon Forsman and Gina Schiess made sure we signed in correctly. If we didn't we weren't given a ticket for the drawings.

Don Gardner of HydroStop kicked of the event with a welcome and a brief talk about his company's sealing system. Sounds like a great way to seal off roofs pretty much forever.

Our buddies John Denison and Brian Matzke of Logos Direct (a Wilmington-based company that does business all over the country) came with some new visors to pass out.

Here's Don Gardner again with a product display. It's a good thing Veterinarian Sheila Hanby wasn't there.

Sheila did arrive soon, shown in the shades talking with Justin Williams, John Denison, Marge Brown, and Connie Reeves.

Here's Jamie Shoemaker wearing a Logos Direct visor.

Here's Jamie again, justifiably smiling: a new visor and a goood meal!

I introduced Brian to our friend Katie White, a graduating senior from UNCW who I believe won an award in the Communications Department. Katie is moving to Leland next week and was checking out our NBCC event. She got a visor, too (good choice, Brian).

Super Volunteer Joyce, ever smiling, helped serve us.

We ate.

And we ate.

Donna and Dan Cameron, owners of Asset Storage in Leland on Blackwell Road are always happy and always at our events. Color them enthusiastic.

George Murray of Murray Art and Frame isn't big on appearing in this short video clips, but he does a great job.

Greg Darrow, of Images 8 Photography, is also a professional actor -- can you tell?

NBM Magazine's Justin Williams is another good sport about giving a quick video clip.

Meanwhile, people kept eating.

Here's another shot of the ever-photogenic Greg Darrow and his super spouse, Margaret.
Marge Brown and Connie Reeves.

George Murray talked with us a bit about the Buckingham's concert on June 20th and the VIP party on the 19th. Going to be a great time. Call the NBCC office for ticketsat 910-383-0553.

In this shot below it looks like Donna Cameron and Greg Darrow are having a staredown. Actually I think he was just listening intently.

Monica Clark, Chamber Ambassador and PrePaid Legal representative, also welcomed us to the Chamber event.

As did Board of Directors member Tony Vlach of Hibiske Insurance Group:

Chamber Executive Director Terry Grillo:

In the photo below I snuck in as Justin Williams was getting this table to smile. I steadied my camera arm on his shoulder and grabbed a quick shot.

Lots of prizes were handed out via drawings by this able crew.

Wonder how good the food was? Check out George Murray and Victor Pearsal.

Marge met new Chamber volunteer Dennis Johnson and new Chamber member Kerry Kasotsky.

Bernadette Hayes of N2 Publishing with the founders of the new Zen-sation Day Spa & Boutique.

So the Business After House on May 1st, 2009 was another great success. Congratulations and thanks to all involved, especially Tommy Sullivan.
