Everyone Loves the Summer in Los Gatos!
The sun is shining, the fountain is flowing and people are all over the town, shopping, dining and playing. I will not mention traffic issues or parking. The experts are working on solving those problems. One of the town's best features during the summer months is the music. From Jazz on the Plazz to Music in the Park; to Vasona Vibrations to our very own Block Parties, there is a sound for all types of music lovers.
I am sure you heard about the first Summer Block Party last month. Thanks to all who came out to support us. Thanks to the merchants, to all the musicians and the magician. We will be back with more fun for all next Thursday Night, July 19th.
Hopefully you saw the Chamber and Los Gatos Food and Wine out at
Music in the Park
last Sunday. Thanks to the Town of Los Gatos for giving us this opportunity. Please stop by our Beer and Wine Garden and say hello. Each week we are highlighting a few of our Los Gatos Food and Wine members and selling small bites to concert goers who did not have time to pack a picnic. Try us out.
Mark your calendars for
Eat Drink Los Gatos
on Saturday, September 22. For Sponsorship opportunities
. Thanks so much for your support of this great community celebration. It is a one and only - so you will want to be a part of it and show your Los Gatos pride. Thanks to
for being our Presenting Sponsor and to
Los Gatos Magazine, Intero Real Estate, Cedar Creek Alzheimer's and Dementia Care, The Alarm Company
and to all of you other members who are about to register!
Three Cheers to our new Chamber Board President, Brayton Gosling, GM at the
Hotel Los Gatos. Brayton has big plans for us, so get ready for some action. If you have yet to really get involved with the Chamber, this is your year. Plan to attend our next New/Old Member Orientation on September 4th and learn about all we have to offer. It is okay if you have been a member for 10 years - come to this Orientation and introduce yourself.
I cannot thank our
Community Impact Partners for all they do. Your support of the Chamber is remarkable. We will continue working on behalf of everyone in Town; the merchants and the residents to ensure that our economy is healthy and sustainable.
Discovery Shop of Los Gatos has started to accept donations at their temporary location, 47 East Main Street. Let's all help them rebuild their great little shop! They plan to reopen at their original location later this month or early August. We appreciate the efforts of Rita Melamed and all that she does for the American Cancer Society. Keep smiling Rita!
Happy Summer to all and to all a warm night.
