The rain stayed away to make the May Business After Hours a success! The Lakeland Flying Tigers and Lakeland Electric teamed up to provide a full evening of food, fun and entertainment.Â Chef Thomas Mackinnon believed that â€œif you GRILL it, they will comeâ€, and presented a fabulous buffet of traditional ball park food with some snazzy extras. With more than 200 people in attendance, you can bet that much of the conversation started over a mini beef wellington or stuffed crab! The experience at Joker Marchant Stadium would not have been complete without some ice cream for Chamber members and guests from Dairy Queen North owner Linda Brown.
Lakeland ElectricÂ representative Barbie Taylor was on hand to receive the plaque of appreciation and a warm acknowledgement from the crowd.Â Zack Burek, General Manager of the Lakeland Flying Tigers accepted the plaque of appreciation and then invited everyone to enjoy a great baseball game between Lakeland and the Jupiter Hammerheads. What could be better than a night at the ballpark?
