Please give a warm welcome to our newest members:
We held four ribbon-cuttings this month. The first was in celebration of the grand opening of SFG Wealth Management’s new office in Millersville. Established in 2004, SFG Wealth Management is a complete financial services firm that assists our clients in building personal wealth and creating financial independence.
Next, we went over to the Severna Park Farmers’ Market for a quick ribbon-cutting, as the place was bustling with customers and the vendors didn’t have a spare moment. Fresh fruit, flowers, veggies, pie and more are available every Saturday from 8:00am to noon at the Jones Station Park and Ride.
Macaroni KID Pasadena – Severna Park – Glen Burnie held a Family Fun Day at the Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi. We performed a ribbon-cutting celebrating the new publisher, Laura Colquhoun. More than 20 vendors were there with wonderful “kid oriented” displays.
Finally, we were honored to participate in Karen Renee Interior Design’s open house to mark 30 years of business success. Karen Osborne has created a thriving business over the years with six staff members working in and out of the state. The catered event brought out many community members and elected officials.
Providence Center’s Greenhouse and Gardens in Arnold was the beautiful location for this month’s Successful Women in Business First Cup Club networking event. Not only does the center provide horticulture training to intellectually and developmentally disabled people, but its work contributes to environmental restoration projects, including the rebuilding of Poplar Island in the Chesapeake Bay.
We were able to purchase plants and also see some of the gorgeous pottery produced in their pottery studio in Arnold, which is open to the public for use!
The Wellness Coalition’s monthly meeting was held at the Severna Park Community Center with keynote speaker Mike Bochniewicz, owner of Mike’s Pharmacy. It was so interesting to learn about what a local pharmacy does, including compounding and sorting medications for those in assisted living facilities and offering personalized service such as expedited home delivery. You can even bring your prescriptions in, and they will “audit” what you are taking to ensure there are no contraindications. Mike’s Pharmacy (three locations) is a great example of what sets a small business apart from a large retailer through personalized service and contributions to the community.
The Chamber of Anne Arundel County held a leadership luncheon at the Crowne Plaza in Annapolis. We heard highlights from elected officials during a Q&A.
Vida Taco Bar in Severna Park was the hot spot for our monthly chamber mixer.
Registration opened for the 2022 Independence Day parade, to be held in Severna Park on Monday, July 4, from 10:00am to noon. We hope to have a “battle of the communities” for the best floats. Start planning now and get your volunteers together for this beloved community event.
