Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies
Congratulations on your new location
Congratulations to Wendy Schulte and her team at Good Common Sense Naturals. They celebrated their new location in downtown Pleasanton with a ribbon cutting ceremony last week. Good Common Sense offers handmade skin care products from the finest natural materials the earth has to offer. Put good in get good out, it just makes good common sense! Their new location is 620 Main Street in Pleasanton.
You're invited
Ribbon cuttings increase the visibility of a grand opening, new location, ground breaking or special anniversary. We'll bring the giant scissors and the red ribbon, invite our ambassadors and publicize the event in our various publications.

You're invited to join the chamber and our ambassadors at the following ribbon cutting ceremony.
