The Breakfast Bites meeting on Sept. 11 will feature Judy Lester presenting “Collective Success: The Power of Collaboration.” The informal meeting opens at 8 a.m. in the Friends Room at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St. The talk will start at 8:30 a.m. Coffee and light breakfast snacks will be provided.
Lester was co-owner of The Escape Fine Crafts and Gifts from 1996-2016. She now enjoys working with business owners, community leaders, and associations to enhance essential standards of practice so they can go after the success they desire. The years spent growing an award-winning Main Street business provides Lester with the perspective and experience concerning the unique challenges historic downtown businesses face. Her passion is seeing businesses thrive abundantly, instead of merely survive.

- Arts and culture
- Public library
- Convention and Visitors Bureau updates and Red Poppy economic impact report
- 2030 Comprehensive Plan update
- Downtown construction projects and parking improvements
