Today I had the good fortune to attend the most recent luncheon held by the Washtenaw Economic Club, held at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti.
The speaker today was Chris Wallace from Fox News. His topics ranged from the War in Iraq to the 2008 Presidential Election.
But more importantly than the topics was the positive energy in the room!
Yes, there were economic leaders from businesses spread all around Washtenaw County. I overheard discussions about how many new people certain businesses were going to be hiring, and soon. I overhead some loud exclamations of business success so far this year in 2007.
Certainly there were some gloomy faces, but only a few. For the most part, there were smiles and excitement all around the room. It was really refreshing to be around such positive energy.
So, no matter what the headlines in the newspaper scream, just know that there are many good things in store for us here in the Ann Arbor area!
