The January 20, 2022 meeting of the Association of Home Businesses was to be our first in-person meeting since March of 2019, featuring Gladstone pancake flipper Sheldon Penner serving up his incomparable “Breakfast for Dinner.” As Chris Cakes Northwest, Sheldon has prepared breakfast for hundreds at special community and private events all over Oregon. Last year, he made parking lot breakfasts for many wildfire refugees.
However, you may have to wait for another occasion to experience this extraordinary “breakfast for dinner” experience.
Due to exceptionally high numbers of Omicron variant COVID-19 numbers occurring in Multnomah County at this time, we have pivoted back to virtual mode for our January meeting. For the program, as planned, attendees will be invited to share recommendations for computer and/or or smartphone apps that may be useful for people in business, especially those who are self-employed and/or working at home.
