Marlborough – Nearly 30 local businesswomen gathered for a networking luncheon Jan. 18 at the Olive Garden at Solomon Pond Mall. The event, “Women at Lunch,” was hosted by the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce (MRCC).
The luncheon sponsor was Cottage Children’s Center, Inc. Marley Couchon, the center’s executive director, and Susanne Morreale Leeber, MRCC president and CEO, spoke for a few minutes about the center’s mission.
“The center is a private, non-profit child care center located next to Marlborough Hospital,” Couchon said. “We offer programs for children who are infants to kindergarten.
“We are very family and community oriented,” she added. “Our motto is ‘We measure success one child at a time.”
Leeber was one of those who helped start the center nearly 30 years ago, she said, when employees of local high tech companies were searching for daycare for their children.
“They really do offer quality care,” she said. “Marley and her staff do a great job.”
Each month the MRCC “Women at Lunch” is held at a different area restaurant which gives the restaurant exposure and allows the attendees to try different establishments while also having the opportunity to network with other businesswomen.
The next event will be held at the Rail Trail Flatbread, 33 Hudson St., Hudson on Wednesday, Feb. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To register or for more information on all MRCC events visit marlboroughchamber.org.
