March MABA Mixer draws record attendance

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE The March 15 mixer for the Middletown Area Business Association, hosted by Jeff Barone of KIMCO Development, set a new attendance record.

Barone said more than 80 people showed up for the mixer, which was held at the Coyote Valley Professional Plaza in Hidden Valley Lake.

The food, refreshments (including wine) and door prizes were impressive. The live Irish music in honor of St. Patrick's Day provided by the Don Coffin Band added to the ambiance of the evening. FolkS from as far south as Santa Rosa and as far north as Upper Lake made the trek to Hidden Valley Lake for this amazing business mixer.

There are two more mixers scheduled by MABA in preparation for Middletown's biggest event of the year "Middletown Days," June 16-17 (Father's Day weekend).

There is a mixer at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at Star Gardens Nursery in Middletown; another mixer is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the Greenview Restaurant in Hidden Valley Lake.

The mixer at Star Gardens is extra-special in that last year that mixer marked the debut of the Aero Airport Shuttle and Charter Service. So, this year's mixer marks their one-year anniversary. The Aero Shuttle was recently chosen as the "Star of Lake County" for best new business.

According to Lee Turner, whose Greenview Restaurant will shortly be featuring a new menu, his May 17 mixer will feature live western music. The last time the Greenview Restaurant hosted a MABA Mixer, they put on an outdoor luau complete with a Hawaiian music and a dancer.

Neither one of these mixers should be missed. Attendance is free at all MABA mixers, which are open to the public.

But, that is not all. These mixers are a tremendous benefit to the community. They present a unique opportunity to spread one's business message. Anyone who has experienced MABA's door-prize procedure at the end of the first hour knows this.

However, it is important to get an idea as to how many people plan to attend in advance to help with the planning. If you would like to attend a MABA mixer, contact Lamar Morgan at 709-8605 and leave a call-back phone number, if necessary. A special Evite invitation needs to be sent to you through which you can RSVP.

Help in making a MABA mixer a success is always welcome. So, when you call, do not hesitate to ask how you might be able to help.
