PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, JANUARY 2017
Wishing you a Happy New Year with 2017 promising to be a year filled with continuing progress for our El Sobrante Valley Community! Your Chamber’s success is measured by your support, the volunteer efforts of so many caring and concerned citizens and your commitment to making our Community the best it can be.
We encourage you to join the Chamber, for your paid membership affords us the opportunity to move forward with improvements, to provide ongoing and essential maintenance of our business districts and above all, your voice will serve to shape the future of our valley community. We welcomed several new members this past month, listed in this issue, and thank those who have continued their membership throughout
Mark your Calendars! The Chamber’s 2017 Officers and Board of Directors will be installed by Supervisor John Gioia on Saturday, January 21st. An invitation to the event is included in this issue. We invite you to join us, meet your friends, neighbors and business associates, and enjoy a cordial and friendly evening. We will be honoring our Business of the Year, Oliver’s Ace Hardware (Richard Oliver), one of our Community’s long standing businesses, and Citizen of the Year, Martha Booz. Martha is our Newsletter/Website Editor, our liaison with the County for our downtown trees/urns project, and President of the Friends of the Library. Finally, we are pleased to have the De Anza High School jazz band performing during our social hour.
Your Chamber office is now open for business. We are in need of volunteers to work in the office on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 10 to 12 Noon. Please contact me if you are interested – and we can enjoy a cup of coffee/tea, too!
It has been an honor serving you as President these past 3 years and I look forward,with much enthusiasm and pride, to welcoming Scott Tuffnell as your Chamber President.
