    You won't want to miss out on this opportunity to paint (virtually) alongside talented local artist Elizabeth Howe

    Elizabeth, from Michigan Made, will be guiding us through a floral painting. She will provide fun tips and pointers while offering a step-by-step painting process.

    Paint, brushes and a 9x12 canvas are included in the cost of this event, and registrants will need to pick up the supplies either the day before the event any time after 3 p.m. or on the day of the event.

    Registrants will need to provide their confirmation email when they stop by Michigan Made to pick up their supplies to verify that they have registered for the event.

    Registration closes on Sunday, May 2.

    Connect Marquette is continuing our monthly Lunch With Leaders series, and our May guest is Erik Granger!

    Erik is the owner of Superior Salon Systems, a professional beauty product distributor committed to local service and salon growth. As a solo entrepreneur, Erik has built a flourishing business, despite a global pandemic, a busy family life and a battle with Stage 4 cancer. 

    This Lunch with Leaders will explore Erik's success in the face of serious odds, his ability to maintain a positive attitude and his amazing entrepreneurial grit. 

    This event is intended to provide an accessible setting, where the Connect Marquette membership can get to know our guest a bit, while learning and sharing information, discussing topics relevant to our mission: being an instrumental part of the long-term success of individuals in Marquette County through collaboration, inclusiveness, innovation, and the U.P. work ethic. This is a great opportunity to get to know our featured guest in a small-group format.

    This Lunch With Leaders meeting will be hosted virtually. So please take this opportunity to get to know a bit more about one of our local community leaders. Get your laptop, take a break and spend your lunch with us!

    Registration will be available until shortly before the start of the program. Registrants will receive a follow-up email with information on how to join the discussion.

    Each month, Connect Marquette will feature a guest speaker in an informal lunch setting. Organized topics at different venues in downtown Marquette (when such meetings are again possible) will be announced ahead of time. The topic will be selected by the featured speaker, and a few topics can be suggested by the organization ahead of time for preparation.
