Thursday evening the 12th of December, the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce http://www.flaglerchamber.org held their annual Christmas Party at 20 Airport Road, along with other businesses next door. Office Divvy, http://www.officedivvy.com. One Stop Employment Center, http://www.floridajobs.org/onestop/onestopdir/OneStopDirList.asp?Region=11
, and the Tourism board of Flagler County.
Once a Month, usually the 3rd Thursday of the month, the chamber holds an After Hours Event. This takes place at 5:30 pm at one of the local businesses. It is a fabulous way for small and large businesses to get together socially and network. Oh, and have fun too.
Once a year, the After Hours becomes the Chrsitmas party and is held the 2nd Thursday of December. What a fantastic Event.
Food from Carrabba’s, http://www.carrabbas.com/?gclid=CJXDp4-ssrsCFUMV7AodTzQAtA, was delicious, from mash potatoes, Penne Alfredo, sauteed broccoli, grilled chicken, to dessert. Carrabba’s came to Palm coast and soon joined the Chamber. So like I said from small Mom and Pop places like us, J & H Junk Removal, LLC, http://www.jandhjunkremoval.com. to businesses like Carrabba’s. All are welcome.
The picture above was right before we left for the evening, starting with our kitchen table, our tree, and Joe locking up.
So many people came out for the evening’s event, too many to mention all, but The Chamber Ladies hosted and took turns pouring beer and wine. At Office Divvy, Mark Woods, Tiki Tender, co-owner of the Humidor at European Village, https://www.facebook.com/HumidorPalmCoast, along with owner Jimmy Day of Flagler Spirits,http://www.flaglerspirits.com/, served up more potent cocktails. Ky Ekinci, also owns The Humidor, along with Office Divvy with his wife, Lisa, and the couple host monthly Entrepreneur Night. http://www.meetup.com/Palm-Coast-Coworking-Entrepreneur-Startup/events/144192432/ . Another social networking event held by various businesses.
It was a wonderful evening of food, spirits, networking and just social gathering of friends and acquaintances, and soon to be friends and acquaintances.
To attend the event you brought either, gently used children’s books, for “Just One Book” or an unwrapped toy for “Toys for Tots” or a food or monetary donation for the Food Pantry. All wonderful Holiday causes.
So, if you haven’t attended the Party, start with our regular After Hours, which you can find the location on http://www.flaglerchamber.org, every 3rd Thursday, 5:30 PM. Each Quarter of the year we have a Block Party, also look for locations on the Chamber’s website. You will meet amazing people and incredible busiesses and have fun doing it.
