On Friday, August 8, 2014, approximately thirty local business owners met for a business card swap at Guardian Martial Arts on Ford in Garden City. The result of the meeting is the new Garden City Business Alliance.
Organizers Kelly Perkins and Kerry Partin were pleased at the turnout. They are both active members of the community. Kelly owns Guardian Martial Arts and Kerry hosts a weekly podcast called GC Community Chat.
Kerry has also formed a new Facebook page for the GCBA.
The next meeting of the GCBA will take place at 9 a.m, Friday, September 12, 2014, at ServPro in Westland.
