Presidents Message – Calimesa Chamber of Commerce

Calimesa Chamber Presidents Message – February 25, 2015

The Calimesa Chamber is off to a great start for the Year 2015.  Our Installation and Community Awards Dinner was a great success with attendance from the community larger than we have had in past years.  We have received so many supportive comments from those who attended and we really thrilled with the new direction that we have taken with honoring those great people in our town.  We have our date scheduled for January 14th, 2016 at Tukwet Canyon so get it on your calendar now so you don’t miss this special evening.

On April 23rd at 2:00 pm we will be having our very special Scholarship Tea at the Calimesa Country Club.  This year we will be awarding three (3) $1,000.00 scholarships to graduating high school students from the Calimesa/Yucaipa area.  Also we will be awarding three (3) $500.00 scholarships to High School Juniors who will spend one week attending the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Training to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. We are very, very excited about this special program dedicated to youth who want to make a difference in their communities and schools. Please contact the Chamber office if you would like to attend this tea as we will be sending out invitations around the first and second week in March.

On May 2nd we will again be holding our “Night at the Races” event that raises funds for our Scholarships and community events.  Be sure to stop by the Chamber office for more information about this event – we had a ball last year!  It is a fun, social, adult only evening with actual video horseracing that you can bet and win great prizes!

Our “Welcome Bag” program is still a great success for all of our new homeowners.  If any Chamber members are missing something to put in the bag, give Kathy Houlihan a call at 909.213.7024 – she heads up the program and will explain everything to you.  It’s a courtesy that we extend to all of our Chamber members.  The bags are still being delivered personally by members of the Chamber Board of Directors!

Keep a close eye on our Chamber Calendar!  Our Chamber breakfasts are held on the second Tuesday of the month at Bob’s Big Boy at 8:00 a.m.   We have outstanding speakers and we are really growing in attendance.

If anyone has a couple of hours a week free we sure could use you as a volunteer in the Chamber office.  Just give us a call or stop by Monday – Thursday 9-2:00pm and let us know or even better – just stop by to say hello!
