Executive Director's Notes

By Franҫoise Rhodes

As I was so excited to share 2022 stats with you that I forgot our eblast readership numbers.... in 2022 the Chamber Weekly was read by over 19,000 people and that doesn't count shares, segment copies, etc,. and includes the hiatus in August. Let's make it 25,000 this year.

Reminder that the Chamber Weekly in Spanish will go out to everyone for a while, if you're not interested simply don't open it. However I ask that you share with your Spanish speaking friends so we can grow the database.

On the home page of the Chamber website we've added a link for the wildflower status and locations, this should help our flower seekers.

Be kind to visitors, you never know who you may be talking to!

Many of the streets in Borrego Springs are named after the brands

(used on branding irons) of past ranches in the area.

Can you name this street?
