Happy New Year! It isn’t too late to say that right?
We’re celebrating Erin Mahaney as our January Member of the Month. Erin is the manager at CoLab, as well as a development associate for Veridea Group. Erin says that Connect Marquette has been, ” …a great way to meet other people working in and around Marquette who also want to meet new people and be involved in the community.” She goes on to explain why, “It allows me to meet people in a no-pressure atmosphere and enjoy some type of event or activity at the same time. I wanted a way to meet new people and Connect Marquette is a great way to do so.”
Our January Member of the Month commented on her recent engagements with Connect Marquette, “I really enjoyed connecting with people at the Connect Christmas Party, I met a lot of new people, and the trivia games got us to know each other a bit better and learn each other’s Christmas knowledge.” She was also a big fan of the Au Train River Float & Connect Marquette Picnic.
On a more casual note, we asked Erin what she likes to do outside of her professional life. Mahaney responded, “I’m an avid reader and DIY-er. You can often find me fixing something in my 1940s home, sacked out on the couch with a good book and my cat, Jeffrey, or exploring the area with my pup, Cedar.” Mahaney says her favorite Marquette area events are Art On The Rocks, Iron Bay’s Gingerbread Contest, the U.P. 200, and of course, Plaidurday. Fun fact! She also loves Jilbert’s Ice Cream.
Erin, we are happy to have you as a part of the organization, and congrats on becoming our January Member of the Month. If your strolling around town and see Erin, give her a solid Connect Marquette how d’ya do!
