April was a social month for Business Mount Alexander, with our Friday night drinks at Margot plus our cross-regional event: The Mill Tour. I’m receiving fabulous feedback about BMA and that “there’s a great vibe happening with the group”.
We had a crowd of around 60 who attended The Mill Tour and it was a great night of networking and socialising. Thanks goes to owner of The Mill – Phil McConachy for hosting the tour, to Michael Wolfe at the Taproom and to Elna, Edmond and Roland at Das Kaffeehaus for the lovely food.
We welcomed people from business groups in Bendigo, Maldon, Daylesford and Macedon Ranges and from the smiling faces and positive feedback I’d mark this event as a success!
