Joy Leger, who went through Northern Initiatives’ Business Planning course in Battle Creek, is launching her rollerskating business, Good Vibez.
A multi-week small business course at Northern Initiatives last fall proved incredibly valuable, with Leger officially putting her plan into action with soft launch events at the Burma Center and Bread & Basket in April.
“I always hear, ‘There’s nothing to do in Battle Creek,’ but there is,” Joy Leger said. “I don’t really consider (this) a job. It’s kind of like I’m throwing this party for the community. It’s fun.”
The festivities will be in full swing June 17 as Good Vibez hosts its grand opening launch party at the Burma Center, 765 Upton Ave. in Springfield. The event will feature two skating sessions (1 to 3 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.), a live DJ, concessions and raffle prizes.
