President's Message for June
Summer is fast approaching and your Chamber is keeping pace with the needs of our business community. We are sponsoring our second Business Breakfast get together, which is being held on June 15th, focusing on Web Marketing and Social Media Strategies to help you market your business, using the best practices in today’s competitive environment. We encourage our in-home businesses and residents to benefit from these topics, as well. A flier is included in this issue.
A “new look” is in store for your Chamber Office within the next two months! Look for the “Open” sign on our door – yes, we are planning to be “open for business” at our
Chamber Office a few days a week. To make this happen, we need volunteers. There will be an orientation for all volunteers. We are asking for a minimum of 2 hours a
month, or more often if your schedule allows. Your Chamber Office will also serve as the Stroll headquarters. If you are interested, please contact me at the email address
listed below or call the Chamber Office at: 510-223-0757.
Mark your calendars – See you at the June 8th Mixer hosted by Mike and Renee Rowland, owners of Windermere Rowland Realty. A flier is included in this issue. Also, thanks to Mark & Katrina Croda, owners of El Sobrante Town Garage, for hosting our May Mixer –a winning combination of great food, fun and friends made for an enjoyable evening.
If you see the “Green Team, volunteers wearing fluorescent green vests, on any given Saturday keeping our busy downtown clean, please honk or wave, to let them know you care.
I want to thank all who participated in our May lst "Fun-raiser – vendors, musicians, Chamber Board and members, volunteers, a special “Thank You” to the Mechanics Bank for the use of their grounds, and to those attended.
FLY YOUR FLAGS DURING THE MONTH OF JULY!
Marie Carayanis, President
Chamber Office: 510-223-0757
