Mark your calendars for August 27th, the date of the annual Discover Tyler Street event, in it's 6th year. Same venue as last year - the corner lot on Tyler and Woodlawn.
Halloween brought second prize to the our group for our float. The group also sponsored a very popular Halloween Costume Photo Contest, which will be back this year at with the Halloween Parade.
Network Nights brought together business people from the neighborhood and beyond, along with Speaker Nights for members which included topics such as Keeping Your Business Safe, PERC Loans for Small Business and a Real Estate Development panel discussion, which spurred us to create a Real Estate Committee.
