Region – The Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual summer BBQ July 15 at TEAMWORKS in Northborough. Corridor Nine and HYPE9 (the chamber’s young professionals group) organized the event.
The steamy temperature had little impact on the 17 teams formed by Corridor Nine/HYPE9 members and guests that participated in the fun teambuilding activities. Taking home the first place trophy in the team building challenges were the team represented by St. Mary’s Credit Union Team, Rivkah’s Hair Studio, and Volvo of Southborough. The Corridor Nine Referral Group received an “Honorable Mention” for second place, and the Whitney Place at Northborough, Amcomm Wireless and Mirick O’Connell team were presented with the “Team Spirit” award.
The BBQ was sponsored by Right at Home Boston West, a home health service company located in Westborough. Kris Wallis, general manager and program facilitator Nick Buschetto of TEAMWORKS hosted the BBQ and provided an entertaining and worthwhile program that had members laughing and bonding with each other.
Apple Spice Café & Juice Bar in Shrewsbury cooked up a delicious barbecue and many of the region’s local restaurants brought some of their tasty specialties for the members to enjoy. BBQ supporters included: Not Your Average Joe’s, Noodles & Company, Chick-fil-A, Uno Pizzeria & Grill, and the Doubletree Hotel.
