Thursday, December 8th turned out to be a fun night for the members of “Know It All” Niagara at their Holiday Gathering held at the Ramada Plaza in Niagara Falls. There were displays by a few members of this popular networking group, nibblies provided by yet more members, music by Wendy Lynn Snider (a delight to listen to I might add), and of course drinks, laughter and awards.
Overall the night was a social event with lots of mingling and photos being taken, but Carrie Matthews, chief “Marketeer” (sorry Carrie – I had to steal your word) took the opportunity to thank all the members of “Know It All” Niagara (KIAN) for their contributions and attendance throughout the year as well as all those who helped to make this evening happen. It was a busy year for KIAN hosting their events to help promote each of their members: Monthly Compliments Breakfast meetings, monthly Links After 5, their tailgate party, beer and wing nights, and the list goes on – I can’t remember them all.
The highlight of the night were the yearly awards presented to top KIAN members for outstanding performance through this networking group. A month or so ago all members of KIAN were asked to vote for other members for these awards. Voting closed November 30th with the results announced at the Holiday Gathering.
2011 Top KIAN Ambassador – Gary Burnett, LegalShield (not sure this is the correct title for the award – it was for the person that is always there for everyone)
Runner Up Awards were also presented, but Sssshhhh – it’s a secret….
I’m not much of a reporter – I should learn to take notes I guess.
All in all – another great event by “Know It All” Niagara.
