A Letter to all FABA Members

To All FABA Members:

The dog days of summer are upon us and I hope you will remember to check on your elderly neighbors or those who may not have air conditioning – we take so much for granted and just one visit may make a difference in someone’s life.

With regret, Kristi Sink our FABA Secretary has resigned her position and will be relocating her family to Ohio.  We are happy to welcome Ann Hudgins from Pardee Hospital as our new Secretary and I hope you will join us in making her feel welcome to the FABA family.

FABA has some very exciting events and opportunities coming up.  Mark your calendars now…..

This month, on July 14th we will be visiting with the fine folks at Broadmoor Golf and Event Center for our July Focus After Five.  Bring your business cards, a door prize and a friend to join us for a great night of networking, good food and fellowship.

In  August, we have our regularly scheduled Coffee Club meetings at Dickey’s BBQ from 8 until 9am on the first and third Tuesday.  On August 10th FABA will have a table at the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, held at the WNC Agricultural Center, and would like to ask for FABA members to volunteer for shifts to man the FABA table throughout the event.  Please contact Teona Rodriguez/Events Chair or Glen Bonetti/Events Co-chair to let them know what times work for you.  We already have 4pm until 7pm covered and would certainly appreciate any others who may like to help.

On August 11th – Mountain Credit Union in Fletcher will be our host for the August Focus After Five and we would certainly like to have you there to meet the great folks at Mountain Credit Union and again enjoy the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones together with telling folks about your business.

Finally, SAVE THE DATE – October 4, 2016 – Fletcher Park – our annual FABA BUSINESS EXPO.  Flyers and registration forms will be ready soon.  We enjoyed a fabulous turnout last year and expect nothing less this year.  In addition to our paid vendors we are happy to offer a free table to any non-profit who would like to exhibit at the FABA EXPO.  Please contact Teona or Glenn or any FABA Board member if you are interested.

Thank you for your time and continued support.  If you have any questions or need additional information about our upcoming events please feel free to contact me or any FABA Board member and we will be happy to help.

Best regards,

Lynn Cordell

FABA President
