It’s always nice to be recognized for your hard work and dedication, isn’t it?

Today I’m happy to let you all know that one of our own Business Marketing Representatives, Karla Griscom, was just named the Member of the Year by the Hartland Chamber of Commerce.


Karla was bestowed this honor on Friday, February 21, 2014 at the Hartland Chamber’s annual awards dinner.

When asked about what makes Karla Griscom stand out from the crowd, Hartland Chamber Director Jana Warford said:

She’s active in all three local chambers. Plus, she’s active with her family and active with her career. Yet, she still finds time – she’s really spectacular.

Karla was surprised when it was announced that she had been awarded this honor for the Hartland Chamber.

I am so honored to be named the 2013 Hartland Chamber Member of the Year. This award means so much to me and signifies the Chamber’s appreciation for my time and efforts.

I commend the LaFontaine Automotive Group for having the vision to put people like myself out in the communities to enable us as an organization to give back and be recognized.

I look forward to my continued involvement in the communities we support and I personally extend thanks to LaFontaine Automotive Group and the Hartland Chamber for making this award possible.

The Business Marketing Team at LaFontaine

Karla Griscom truly embodies all the best qualities that are valued by the LaFontaine Family.

One of the aspects of the business operations that has made the LaFontaine Automotive Group so successful over the years is their commitment to support the communities they live and work in.

The dedication to the community began over thirty years ago when Mike and Maureen LaFontaine opened their first dealership in Downtown Milford, Michigan.

Maureen became well known in the community for literally going door-to-door in an effort to personally introduce herself to the residents and business-owners of Milford.

Today that same spirit lives on in the Business Marketing Team. Guided by the nurturing hand of Kelley LaFontaine, each LaFontaine Dealership employs a Business Marketing Representative whose main focus is community outreach.

From being involved in chambers of commerce to organizing charity events, the Business Marketing Team is constantly looking for new and inventive ways to support their communities, just like Karla.

Recent and Upcoming Events

In addition to being actively involved in area chambers of commerce, local BNI’s and other networking groups – the LaFontaine Business Marketing Representatives organize and participate in a number of charity and community related events each year.


Some of the annual highlights include:

The entire team works hard to support our neighbors and those around us. We try to support as many philanthropic organizations as we can while maintaining a positive and inspiring environment.
