A steady stream of new clients continues to necessitate ongoing growth for the company and its outstanding track record.<br /> <br /> MOODY<br /> <br /> My friends here at MailMax just recently picked up a very important little bit of business which will bring even more value to you, the readers of the publication. Publisher Glen Head tells me that Martin’s Super Markets will now be advertising with them. With 20 stores, three of which are in Southwest Michigan (Niles, St. Joseph and Stevensville), you’ll be seeing their ad circulars each week in MailMax.<br /> <br /> Now you will be among the first to know about storewide specials and other major features at Martin’s as a reader of this great publication.<br /> <br /> Congratulations, guys.<br /> <br /> He hadn’t even finished his speech welcoming visitors to the ribbon cutting on the recent expansion of 2nd Look Laptops in Bridgman this past week, when owner Gary Blied announced yet another major enhancement for his burgeoning business downtown.<br /> <br /> Having knocked out the walls in one direction, Gary’s now headed the other direction where he will welcome a partnership with Reggie Curtis, owner of PC Consultants of Buchanan, who is moving his enterprise next door to complete the “one-stop” shopping opportunity in Bridgman. The growth is becoming exponential around this business. Stay tuned!<br /> <br /> From “Delicious & Healthy Soups” to “Beer and Appetizers” to “Breads Class 101,” my friends at Perennial Accents in the heart of downtown St. Joseph are about to unleash a torrent of great new Culinary Classes to really get your engine running.

Organizers of the “Building Our Kids Future” campaign committee teamed up with members of the St. Joseph School’s Board of Education for an informational meeting last week on, Monday, March 1, 2010 in the Upton Middle School Auditorium, to detail the plans and answer questions from family members, voters and any interested party. The independent campaign committee is co-chaired by David & Amy Peterson and Jim and Amy Marohn. The campaign and the meeting were focused on the board’s decision to seek a 2-mil bond issue to improve technology, energy, security, and performing arts sections of the public school system.<br /> <br /> The committee is working to find 130 volunteers to help get voters to the polls for the issue on the May ballot, and will happily answer questions you might have to help you understand the dynamics behind the effort.<br /> <br /> Meanwhile, a dedicated group of parents in the Benton Harbor Area Schools continues work with Superintendent Carole Schmidt in planning for a major fundraising event featuring Michigan State University and NBA Super Star Magic Johnson on Sunday, April 18,<br /> <br /> 2010. Their “Quality Learning For Every Student Everyday” committee is working to assure that no child is left behind. The scholarship fundraiser will be held from 4pm until 7pm that Sunday evening in the Lake Michigan College Grand Upton Hall in Benton Harbor.<br /> <br /> All proceeds from the event will go into a college scholarship fund for BHAS students.<br /> <br /> Several local and state-level dignitaries are expected to be on hand for the program as well.<br /> <br /> If you would like to arrange for tickets to the event, contact Greg McIntyre at 269-605-1077.<br /> <br /> Even if you are unable to attend personally, they welcome your donation to help achieve their stated goal of $50,000.00 for the fund.<br /> <br /> St. Patrick’s Day revelers who would like to get a jump on their annual holiday of fun and excitement will be gathering one week from today, on Saturday, March 13th for the Coloma St. Patrick’s Day Lighted Parade which will step off promptly at 7:30pm through the streets of downtown Coloma. There is also a window display contest among local businesses for which the top prize is $150 in free advertising in the Tri-City Record newspaper. Make plans now to get a group together and go check out the action in the Paw Paw Lake Region.<br /> <br /> That same night, animal lovers have an outstanding event opportunity at the Silver Beach Carousel Society’s Shadowland Ballroom for the You Lucky Dog!

Brookview offers a complete Montessori education for infancy through middle school on a 10-acre campus.<br /> <br /> Some of you are clearly going to have to make some decisions regarding where you’ll go the night of the 13th, because that’s also the Night of celebration for this year’s Berrien County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner, featuring Gubernatorial Candidates State Senator Tom George and Congressman Pete Hoekstra, along with Secretary of State Terry Lynn Land, and Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop who is running for State Attorney General. That dinner, with a social hour of 6pm and dinner at 7, will be held at the Niles Elks Lodge on Canal Street in Niles. For tickets, call 983-6303.<br /> <br /> If you haven’t already heard, you have the perfect opportunity to take your kids to the new Discovery Zone at Silver Beach and totally “gross them out!” Grossology: The Impolite Science of the Human Body has just launched a four-month stay at the Lou & Warren Gast Traveling Exhibit Gallery at the Silver Beach Carousel building in St. Joseph. This world famous exhibit is made possible by Lakeland Care, and runs from now through September 5th. The wildly popular exhibit features twelve interactive stations that teach us about why our bodies do some of the more “strange,” and sometimes impolite, things that they do. Right now the Zone is open Thursdays through Saturdays from 10am until 5pm and Sundays from noon until 5. All programs are free with the $4-dollar admission, and for an additional $2, guests can ride the carousel as well. Don’t miss this amazing display that has garnered worldwide acclaim.<br /> <br /> In the Benton Harbor Arts District, it has now been three years since the establishment of the Board of Directors of Water Street Glassworks. The glass arts school, studios and gallery became a non-profit organization in 2007 with five board members on hand then.<br /> <br /> That board has now grown to 11 members strong, and is currently chaired by Anne Odden.<br /> <br /> Kerri LeRoux of LMC is Secretary and Laurie Mefford is Treasurer. Congratulations on another successful year of growth, folks.<br /> <br /> Also marking a third anniversary is Essentials Salon of Benton Harbor. Stacy, Amanda, Tiffaney & Kelly asked me to thank you, their patrons, for three solid and successful years in business. Stacy Bourlier actually has amassed more than 17 years as a stylist, but her Essentials Salon is the celebrant of this current anniversary. Congratulations, ladies.<br /> <br /> If you are in the market for some quality used office furniture, filing cabinets, shelving, artwork, accessories and more…you might want to plan a trip to Elkhart for WNIT Public Television’s Warehouse Moving Sale.<br /> <br /> The public broadcasters will be moving soon to new studios in downtown South Bend, and need to clear out the goods.
