On Tuesday, March 15th, the Seymour Business League hosted our 1st Business After Hours Mixers at Jackson Point in Seymour.
“History doesn’t happen around us, history is happening here with us now, in this room. We are making history by being here.” – Bill Collar
Our goal was to share the perspectives of both community members and professionals in Seymour. The speakers talked about the growth and changes of they've seen in business and the community during their time here in Seymour.
Tashia Leisgang, owner of Ollie Frocks Boutique, spoke about starting a business within the last 3 years. She gave a moving account of what the community means to her business and her family. Community over competition was what she strives for with SBL.
Performance Corp. owner, Jim Brill, spoke about his journey starting his business over 40 years ago and how the business has grown from a side hustle to a successful, industry leading packaging manufacturer, recycler and trucking company in the Seymour community. They currently employee over 250 employees.
The night came to a conclusion with Bill Collar of the Seymour Community Historical Society. Coach Collar has been a pillar of this community starting back to when he first took the high school varsity football coaching position. Coach also donned the title of Hamburger Charlie for some time. He was able to share the experiences he's had with the Seymour community.
