Meet fellow business owners and hear about business in one of the state’s most innovative communities at the next meeting of the Business Owners Social Society (BOSS) on Friday, September 18, 5:30 p.m. at the Clock Tower Inn.

Business owners from throughout the state are welcome to hear Tom Spika, owner of Spika Welding of Lewistown, talk about the growth of his business and its role in helping to lay the economic foundation for this small mid-Montana community. Spika’s manufacturing concern now reaches far beyond Montana borders as an exporter of products and services, and along the way in developing his business, Spika has gained some interesting insights about business.

Enjoy a social hour with wine and beer and a catered dinner which begins at 7 p.m. To own a business is the only criteria to join this unique organization which requires no joining, no dues, no officers, no committees, no commitments. BOSS requires nothing of its members except to show up and be part of face-to-face entrepreneurship that helps cultivate and grow the economy as business owners discover the opportunities available to them locally.

Spouses are welcome. RSVP by sending checks for dinner — $29 per person – to BOSS, PO Box 3262, Billings, MT 59103 to be received by Sept. 15. For more information call 259-2309, or email press@ bigskybusiness. com.
