This year's Lincoln Showcase another grand event
By: Mark Luster Special to Inside Lincoln
I hope you didn’t miss it! Downtown Lincoln was in full party mode on Saturday, Sept. 24 and was a great success, thanks to more than 800 Showcase guests and the event’s generous sponsors. The food and beverages were outstanding this year, thanks to more than 40 vendors from all over the region and LoveTrain had us all on our feet and dancin’ in the streets and Beermann Plaza until the very end. This year, we added three great opportunity drawings for party-goers, including first prize of $500 cash! The winner of that drawing was obviously glad she made Showcase part of her weekend. Thank you, Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville and the region for making Showcase Lincoln’s annual biggest and best party! Now that the party’s over, don’t forget the popular Brown Bag Business Forums at noon on the first Wednesday of every month in City Hall. There is no charge for this benefit that is open to all Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce members and it is a valuable business resource. Call the chamber office at 645-2035 to register for these Brown Bag events. I’ll close by encouraging you to mark your calendars for this year’s remaining monthly chamber breakfasts. It gets a bit tricky around the holidays so please reserve these dates: Wednesday, Oct. 26 and Wednesday, Dec. 7. Join us at Orchard Creek Lodge for a delicious breakfast, motivating speakers and networking opportunities. There is no chamber breakfast in November. I look forward to seeing you in and around Lincoln, Mark Luster is the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce president.
