While the heat was scorching outside, we were calm, cool, and collected in the well-air conditioned Blake, getting our network on! After opening comments and reminders from one of our fearless co-founders (Alahna), we watched a sweet and uplifting video, reminding us to enjoy the little things in life as they come:

Spotlight Speaker: Our spotlight speaker for this month was Rosa McIntyre with Clark Group Insurance. Do you have policies spread all over like butter on toast?

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Amanda Acey, Southern Lifestyle Development and Waterton Development. Flowood is growing, ya’ll! A very pregnant Amanda Acy visited with our group to give us the 411 about what was coming to the empty field off East Metro Parkway, behind Dogwood Mall. The new development will contain houses, townhouses, retail stores, and restaurants. Look for it to be open late fall of 2019! For more information about Waterton, please click HERE. Here’s a glimpse of the future development:

ON THE MENU:  There is nothing like a light lunch on a hot day! This month, we were treated to roasted chicken, spinach salad with choice of dressing, rice pilaf, and shellie beans. For dessert, we had a HEALTHY slice of pecan pie (pecans are healthy, right???), all washed down with strawberry and mint infused water and tea. Yum!
