"Our Common Link"

While I was at the V.A. Hospital recently, I saw a quotation that stated "For, in the final analysis, our most common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We breathe the same air, we cherish our children's future, and we are all mortal " President John F. Kennedy (1963)

At the Chapel Hill Leads Group, we also have a common link. That is, the desire to help each other prosper in our respective business's. I hope that you will accept my invitation to join me this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself the reason why this is the largest business referral group in the Region.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
