New Lunch and Learn with the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce:

A group of Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors wanted to host a monthly lunch networking event in collaboration with the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce. Saundra Marie Ramirez, Raziel Arciga, Lynnette Goodenough and Anne Heisinger all helped in putting together our new monthly Lunch & Learn event. We had our first lunch on October 11 at Woodstone Pizzeria from 11:30am to 1pm. You’ll hear more about it in our next Chairman’s Message.

Our second will be at VITA Italian Bar & Grill on Thursday, November 8 from 11:30am to 1pm.

Our plan is to visit Chamber member restaurants for a meal and networking. Each restaurant will have an opportunity to educate our members about their restaurant and the Chamber will also educate our members on how to take advantage of all the benefits the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce has to offer. Hope you’ll be able to join us.

September Recap:

We had a lot of fun in September including several Grand Opening and Ribbon Cuttings, a great mixer and a lot of activity on our social media accounts.

Grand Opening and Ribbon Cuttings:

We celebrated Ribbon Cuttings at The Tilted Kilt and Starbucks on September 7 and Xscape Pods (Watch the video) on September 24. We will update you on our two Ribbon Cuttings & Grand Openings on October 4 at California Regional MLS and TownPlace Suites. And we will hope to see you at our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for The Dental Office on Soquel Canyon on Saturday, October 13.

Monthly Mixer at Chino Neighborhood House:

Our Monthly Mixer at Chino Neighborhood House was so much fun. We set up Aguiar Square which is the park between the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Chino Neighborhood House. We had some great raffle prizes and made many new friends. In fact, our monthly mixer brought in two new members. How exciting and thank you to Chino Neighborhood House for hosting.
