PEERS Meeting January 10th

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We’re so happy to be back after a break for the holidays 🙂 Today was our first business meeting of the year, and there was a lot to talk about. …but first we started with our commercials. Maureen from Valley Eye Care informed us that when a patient opts for Lasik eye surgery all of their pre & post operation care is done right here in Corvallis (surgery is performed in Portland). Peg Welch is stepping into a busy time of year for Pathfinder Travel with couples and groups booking their off-season trips as well as booking early for the prime-season locations. Dian {River Crossing Art Therapy & Counseling} is accepting new groups and individuals for both personal and professional development sessions. Amanda {Amanda Photographic} announced the official beginning of Wedding Planning Season. Most vendors book 6-12 months in advance so start your planning early! Stefanie & Bonnie from Rice’s Pharmacy & Gift are already gearing up for Valentine’s Day. They have a wonderful selection of chocolate and sweet gifts. Karen {KidSpirit/GOTR} had her first day of gymnastics yesterday for kids 2+ yo. It’s also fundraising time for the Girls On The Run program – if you’re interested in sponsoring a team, being a Sole Mate, or running buddy contact Karen stat! Nadine {GF RN/RN On-Call} was excited to announce that she has her first international speaking conference booked in British Columbia. Great job Nadine! Also if you or someone you know is suffering from an idiopathic condition, stop by her office to see if you have a gluten intolerance/Celiac Disease. Elaine {Simply Home Professionals LLC} is here to take care of staging your for-sale home. Her favorite thing to do is strip wallpaper so give her a ring when you’re ready to remodel. 🙂 We’re very excited today to welcome two new members: Christine Moon from Red Stem. Christine offers landscape design & maintenance. Right now is a great time to start planning your new layout or garden. Also Susan Binder with Let’s Get Comfortable interior design. Susan offers the full gamut of design services. 🙂

Today we missed Corey from Heresco Chiropractic, Tami from University Honda, and Tara from the State Farm Office of Jeff Mills. We’re also sad to say good-bye to Lora of Initials Inc. …but we’ll still she her when she visits for guest speaking!

As you might imagine most of what goes on in a business meeting isn’t appropriate for a blog post. We reviewed our by-laws and discussed what types of business we’d like to see join our group this year.

  • restaurant
  • hair stylist/barber/salon
  • communications/technology
  • cleaning service
  • bookstore
  • florist/garden retail
  • coffee shop
  • exercise/gym facility
  • seamstress
  • vet
  • plumbing
  • non-profits

If you know Corvallis area woman with one of these businesses we encourage them to check out the information on this page and contact our President Peg Obrist {Citizens Bank} to schedule a visit.
