The Multi-State Mixer at Aldens Kennels June 6 was a great success with more than 300 in attendance.

There are mixers and then there are mixers. For those who aren’t familiar, a mixer, in this context, is a business event where business owners and managers meet to socialize, reinforce and establish relationships with other business owners and managers. The mixer June 6 at Aldens Kennels, however, was an example of a mixer on steroids.

Most mixers count the number of people who attend in the dozens – two or three dozen. The Multi-State Mixer at Aldens Kennels, however, included business owners and managers from nine different chambers of commerce and business networking organizations; they counted the attendees in the hundreds. This was the fourth year of the event.

“We had (#?) people attend the mixer,” said Al Domrase, the owner of Aldens Kennels. “It’s a great way for people in the business community to connect with others in the community.”

The mixer started at 5 p.m. and lasted until shortly after 7 p.m. At 6 p.m., there was a demonstration, on dry land, by the National Champion Wonder Lake Ski Team. The speaking-engagement and radio team of 2 Bald Guys & A Microphone emceed the event (the 2 Bald Guys are Tim Stewart and Kent Jones). There was food, drinks and raffles – lots of raffles.
