Two New Board Members for Brandon First

Please join the Brandon First staff and Board of Directors in welcoming our two newest volunteer board members:

Anna Dumas is the owner/operator of Prairie Firehouse downtown, a beautiful restaurant in an historical building with a modern atmosphere and menu.

Aaron Tycoles is the General Manager of the Clarion Hotel and Suites, formerly the Royal Oak Inn. This recently upgraded hotel has been one of the prime accommodation providers in our city for over 45 years.

We are thrilled to have them join our organization and look forward to all the new ideas and guidance they will provide around the board room table.

Once you have an event of any size in mind, we can take most of the work out of making it a reality. Our knowledgeable staff will help with bid writing, work with planners, suppliers, and venues, help generate volunteers, assist in marketing your event, and all of this is free of charge!
