Update: Apparently I copied a previous months release for Business & Breakfast. I do apologies for any inconvenience, but there is a $5 charge for members and $15 for non-members. 

The Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce and Lakeland Habitat for Humanity present the October Business and Breakfast on Thursday, October 9 from 7:30 am to 9:00 am at 1317 George Jenkins Blvd. Chairman of the Lakeland Economic Development Council (LEDC), Bill Mutz, will be giving an update from the LEDC.

Business and Breakfast is an opportunity for Chamber members and area businesses to network with new business contacts, suppliers and customers. A different host site sponsors the event each month. There is no cost to members but reservations are required.
