Amelia Business Network - We had our monthly meeting this afternoon at the Golf Club of Amelia Island. Thanks to our hosts for providing a great meal and beautiful setting. Our guest speaker spoke about the upcoming Iron Man triathalon on Amelia Island. They are looking for contestants as well as volunteers for the event which takes place at Main Beach on Amelia Island.

I wanted to highlight some interesting networking partners who were at the meeting today. Red Bones Bakery specializes in healthy dog treats and is located on 8th Street. They just celebrated their 10th anniversary. I often stop in to pick up unique dog treats and custom gift items for friends with dogs. Their annual dog parade takes place in December and usually has a great turn out of furry friend.

Another interesting story at the meeting was that Laurel and Hardy once stayed at The Florida House Inn on 4th Street in downtown Fernandina Beach. The Amelia Island Film Festival will celebrate this fact by incorporating it into their fall event, comedy shorts and dinner at the Florida House Inn.

Thanks to all those who attended.
