Western Communities Business Group To Kick Off New Season

The Western Communities Business Group will kick off the 2013-14 season on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall.

The Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall has relocated and is now open in its beautiful, new location at 13920 Wellington Trace, Suite 44, in the Wellington Marketplace.

Last year, local business owners banded together and formed the Wellington Business Group, which successfully utilized common advertising, promotions and creative marketing to reach out to members of the equestrian industry. The growth and success of last year’s group has proven that there is a definite need for such a group, and this year they are planning on expanding membership numbers and geographic base to include all of the western communities. In order to reflect this, the group has been renamed the Western Communities Business Group.

Maureen Gross will be joining the leadership team of the Western Communities Business Group. She brings extensive experience in meeting the needs of area businesses and business owners. “I am looking forward to growing the outreach and targeted programs that this business group will provide to the local businesses that are its members, and to increase the group’s economic impact in our local communities,” Gross said.

Members of the local business community are invited to stop by the Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall on Saturday, Nov. 23 for the reception. The afternoon will include refreshments, networking and a place to catch up with fellow, local business leaders.

While there, they can get information on the Western Communities Business Group’s member benefits or suggest benefits that they would like to see added to the current programs.

Guests will be able to either renew their current membership or sign up as a new member this year at a cost of $150 per business membership.

The group’s mission is to focus on local, community-rooted businesses and to provide them with the tools and programs that will help their businesses thrive. This will ultimately strengthen the community and build a vibrant, durable local economy.

To RSVP for the reception, call the gallery (561) 333-3100 or Gross (561) 714-0887.
