Last Thursday, September 27 local businesses and community members came together for the McKinleyville Chamber of Commerce annual MegaMixer at Azalea Hall. This mixer was different from the average mixer in that 20 businesses were showcased and hosted as compared to the usual single host. The Chamber's MegaMixer is an opportunity for smaller businesses that might not have the room to host a monthly mixer, don't have a brick and mortar building, or are from out of the area to get much needed exposure. The mixer was set up in a business expo style with the host businesses each having a table to show off their products and services. McKinleyville Parks & Rec was selected to receive October's business spotlight. McKinleyville Community Services District provided the venue again this year and Mad River Radio did a wonderful job with the food and beverages. This years co-hosts were: Cal - Ore Life Flight, David Hamilton Design, Dalianes Travel, Serv Pro of Eureka, Mary Wallaker - State Farm, McKinleyville Lions Club, Bay Pointe Mortgage, Ceremonies by Design, Eureka Payments, Diane's Sweet Heat, JB Maryn, Wayne's Automotive, Arcata Fire, Klotz Mobile Detail, Shred Aware, McKinleyville Parks & Rec, and Humboldt Human Resources. The September mixer will be hosted by Miller Farm's Nursery on Thursday the 24th. See more pictures here.
