President's Message for July 2016
Summer has arrived, we are embarking on the last half of this year, and your Chamber is thriving! The months of Summer will bring new LED street lights (PG&E’s upgrade program) a new look for our Chamber Office building, along with volunteers working in our Chamber Office on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10 to 12 pm. Starting date to be announced.
During these forthcoming months, your Stroll Committee will be hard at work finalizing the planning for the Stroll, which will be held Sunday, September 18th. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the chairpersons listed below.
In answer to several inquiries: Yes, we are fully aware of the need for stronger supports to uphold the trees that are unable to withstand the winds along our downtown corridor and we are working with the County to correct this. We do need your help. If you see any destruction of the trees or potted planters, we ask you to contact Martha Booz at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our second business breakfast held on June 15th focused on Marketing and Social Media, with presentations by Jim Hammack, NERD Crossing, and Vivian Wong, San Pablo Economic Development Corporation. It was another successful networking meeting. We will be planning another breakfast for the Fall. These networking opportunities are sponsored by the Chamber with the intent of providing professional services, not only to the business community, but to our residents, as well.
