Hello Everyone,

How are you doing? I hope that you and your family are healthy and safe. This has been a busy week for us. There were a lot of outdoor concerts and festivals going on this week and next week. I hope to see you at upcoming happenings.

Let me first tell you about an opportunity that I had this week. I felt blessed that Michael Haynie asked me to be a guest on his first show this week. I was a little nervous, but he helped me through it all. His show, “Wake Up Baltimore,” features positive stories on positive people in Baltimore. In addition to sharing positive news, Haynie’s program includes weather, sports, entertainment, and the arts. It can be heard every Monday Morning from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Just tune in by visiting this link: https://www.youtube.com/user/mhaynie100 . This week’s other guest was Dr. Mike Zollicoffer, who is known as a world-renowned pediatrician.

Scola Dinero of Dru Hill is headlining the show, “A Tribute to the Men of Soul.” The red carpet extravaganza will be held on Friday, August 19, 2022 at the Forum Caterers, located at 4210 Primrose Avenue in Baltimore. TMarvin of The Persuaders, Shelton Cornelius Price, and Tamba Giles are also a part of the lineup. Showtime is 8 p.m. Formal attire is required.

Haynie is also the CEO and chairman of the board of his company, Global Training Centers LLC.  Additionally, he founded the Maryland Center for Hospitality Training. He has devoted his entire professional career to the lodging and hospitality industry.  Haynie served as the vice president and managing director of Baltimore’s Tremont Hotels which encompasses the upscale Tremont Plaza Hotel and the economy Tremont Park Hotel. He worked as a general manager with Hilton and InterContinental hotels in Baltimore, Maryland; Boston, Massachusetts; and Hartford, Connecticut. Haynie’s career led him to be employed as a general manager with independent and branded hotels located in Charlotte, North Carolina;  Hartford, Connecticut;  Boston Massachusetts; and Washington, D.C. For more information about Mike Haynie’s show, or if you would like to be a guest on it, call him at     443-604-3835.
