Hosts Drew and Chris Nichols were fabulous and had the coffee brewing and tables set up and draped by 7:30am and even brought in their daughter Stephanie to help set up.
They added another 9 new members and welcome Ray Piacentini of Lloyd Bedford Cox, Ayo Hart, co-founder of Dolphin Organics, Chris Vescio of Vescio Family Office, Brady Sweet, local coordinator for Habitat for Humanity, Lisa Buchman, editor of Bedford-Katonah Patch, Mike Weitzman, motivational speaker, Barry Kleiman, founder of Esource Coach, Sharon Silverman, founder of A New Chance Animal Rescue, Stephanie Krawchick who just started a Pet Transportation company called Tranpetation!
Jim Killoran was fabulous as the ambassador for Habitat for Humanity and he showed us pictures of homes built right here in our community! The crowd responded enthusiastically as a number of people signed up to help with future projects. Jim is going to be opening one of Habitat’s Re-Store in Westchester which resells furniture and appliances donated from individuals and corporations. I connected Jim with Pam Stone, the founder of The Benefit Shop, who said she would be delighted to work with him going forward to donate furniture, draperies and other household items to both the families who move in to new homes as well as the Re-Store when it is opened. We raised $220 in cash and Jim has an entire roster of new crews ready to help with the next home!
Julia Vosler, a decorative painter, was so happy to make new connections. She spent time with Barry Kleiman who gave her inspirational advice on time management. She and Mike Jones of Knight Security bonded over Red Velvet Muffins and she finally got to meet Stacy Geisinger, founder of Stacy Knows, a cool blog about what is happening in Westchester to which Julia subscribes. They have common friends so it was a “2 degrees of separation” meeting.
Mike Keane, proprietor of Keane’s Auto Body in Bedford Hills was interviewed by Lisa Buchman, editor of Bedford-Katonah Patch who wrote a lovely feature story about Mike last July – check it out….. http://bedford.patch.
Ayo Hart, co-founder of Dolphin Organices with her hubby Nigel was delighted to be included, As a board member extraordinaire, she gets around town doing lots of good deeds. She is a board member of Friends of Karen which will be the sponsored non-profit at our April meeting. She says she is looking forward to Team Dolphin getting out to help Habitat hammer out a new home this summer.
Dr Laurie Hess made all kinds of connections with her ice-breaker nametag as Dr Exotic Vet. Dr. Laurie just celebrated her two year anniversary with her Veterinary Center for Birds and Exotics in Bedford Hills. Dr. Laurie takes care of Kathy Boyle’s many little critters and offered to host the May Breakfast Club.
Stacy Geisinger of Stacy Knows was interviewed by Lisa Buchman at the breakfast as well. Kathy Boyle and Stacy figured out that they are neighbors and Stacy and her hubby helped locate “Mr. Bean” last summer, a rascally little beagle Kathy was babysitting who decided to explore the neighborhood. Stacy and her hubby had heard him barking at a local horse farm and directed Kathy there and Mr. Bean was returned to safety.
Kathy Boyle thought Jim Killoran of Habitat for Humanity just rocked. Jim invited Kathy to be a guest on his radio show this Wednesday, February 15 at about 9:20am. Tune in via www.wvox.com or 1460 on your am radio dial.
Kathy was delighted to finally meet Lisa Buchman, the busy mom who is editor of Bedford Katonah Patch. Lisa ran an article and video about the Breakfast Club in Monday’s edition. Check it out at http://bedford.patch.com/
Through the story in Bedford-Katonah Patch we received several inquiries from local business owners who would like to be invited to the next Breakfast Club!
And several attendees sent names of foks they want me to add to the Breakfast Club. We just keep growing! The Pumpkin Pecan Waffles and Breakfast Biscuit Pizza were big hits along with the vegan sausage and onions and leftovers were scarce. I’m happy to share recipes anytime. All in all, it was a tremendously successful event for all.
I look foward to seeing people in March!
