Yesterday's LIVE Lunch was held at Cattle Dog Cafe' with owner Chelsea Schoeni. We really enjoyed seeing her beautiful new location, and learning about her history and her menu! We also learned that she works closely with other local businesses and has many of their products for sale. Joe also gave a recap thanking everyone that helped make the July 4th Picnic & Fireworks Show a resounding success! The video can be viewed on Facebook.

If you are a Chamber member and interested in being featured during LIVE Lunch, let us know. And, if would like to become a member, it's quick and easy to do so online, or you can call our office at 760-789-1311. Our office hours are Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Our next mixer will be held on Thursday, July 21, at Chase Bank. As usual, we will have food, beverages, networking, opportunity drawings and FUN!

Please RSVP to Laura Leeman at if you would like to attend.

Attending a mixer is not only fun, but it can also be an opportunity to get exposure for your business. Chamber directors, Ambassadors, and members get to know you better, enjoy a positive experience with your business, and will think of you more often when asked for recommendations.

Donating to our opportunity drawings is a great way to advertise your business! We can accept baskets or individual items/gift certificates. You can drop off items at our office Monday through Friday from 10am- 4pm up until the day of the event.

We really appreciate these early donations from Mt. Woodson Golf Club, Ramona Disposal Service, Jewelry World and Bob Luikart (Ron's Tire & Brake gift card).
