President's Message for August 2016
Has anyone ever asked you, “Where is the Chamber Office located?” or, “Do you have a Chamber office?” Yes, we have an office! Your Chamber office is located at 3769-B San Pablo Dam Road and it is taking on a new look. Black shutters have been added to the building’s façade. Soon a new awning with signage will let all know where we are.
Also, we are pleased to announce that beginning this month the office is now open for business on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 12 Noon. The office is being staffed by volunteer members of the Chamber. If you would like to volunteer your services, please contact me. The office is also used as our Stroll headquarters.
Volunteers play a major role in your community and are the back-bone of so manyof our local organizations and groups. If you are retired and have the time, or feel you would like to give back to your community: Consider volunteering. Your rewards may not be monetary, but the time you spend, perhaps sharing the knowledge you have acquired after years of working, making new friends, and for those of you who are retired, making good use of your time – these rewards cannot be measured.
The Chamber’s publication, El Sobrante Guide to Shopping, Dining and Services, lists your Civic and Community Organizations, all of which would welcome your volunteer services. Copies are available at the Chamber Office, the El Sobrante Library, and at various businesses in El Sobrante, or here: http://www.elsobrantecachamber.com/BOM.html
Please join us for our monthly mixer on August 10th, co-sponsored by Nerd Crossing and the Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante. Also, mark your calendars for the 23rd Annual Stroll on Sunday, September 18th – “Strolling to the Future!”
I cannot emphasize enough that your Chamber needs you and your local businesses need your support – JOIN THE CHAMBER and STOP AND SHOP LOCAL!
Thank you! See you at the Stroll in September!
