H i Everyone -

Grace and patience are the words of the week. Hope you are enjoying the pop-up patio experiment. It was great seeing so many of your smiling faces this past weekend.

Thanks to the restaurants and our merchants all over town who have worked so hard to open safely and bring our town back to life. There are still changes yet to come - a bit of juggling of the pop-up patios and some painting.

If you have other ideas you'd like to share that you think would benefit everyone in town we encourage you to speak at the Town Council meeting tonight. Click Here for info.

Shop local and experience LG safely! Please wear your mask.

With your support we will be able to keep our doors open and continue to advocate for our businesses and Los Gatos community.
With every donation of $50 or more, you will receive a Friends of the Chamber decal, pictured above. Cats come in orange, blue or green.
The Chamber of Commerce, just like every business, is experiencing financial impacts due to COVID-19. Our ability to generate revenue has been greatly diminished due to the protocols necessary to control this pandemic. Despite all of these challenges, we have made our resources, webinars, and public policy advocacy available to the general public during this challenging time. 

If you are interested in supporting our efforts to be a catalyst, convener and a champion for a stronger community, we would be grateful for your financial contribution of any size. We look forward to continuing to serve you all.
