First Annual Fairfax Wine Stroll 
A Success 
Held on Saturday, October 4th, the event seemed to please most everyone: strollers and wine tasters, stores & restaurants, and the wineries.
Over 150 people spent three hours exploring Fairfax, stopping in at 16 different locations around town to sample wines from over 20 wineries and enjoy accompanying food samples.

If you missed being part of The Fairfax Wine Stroll this year, look toward 2015.  The Chamber of Commerce will  be hosting the Wine Stroll again.

Required State & Federal Postings

Employers are required to post certain Labor Laws on their premises, and then keep them up to date.  You can download the notices from the California and Federal websites, and there are also many companies that print and sell either laminated or unlaminated posters.
If you google keywords such as  "california employers workplace postings" you will get a list of several suppliers of posters.

Chamber Members Vote on Measures J and A

When the Chamber of Commerce is approached for endorsements, we poll the membership on the issue.
In this election season we polled our membership on Measures J and A.  In both cases, those responding to the poll endorsed these measures by substantial majorities. Therefore, the Chamber has endorsed both of these Measures.
