By now some of you at least are planning your vacations and looking forward to the coming summer months. While you are planning your summer time events, the Chamber is hoping that you will include events like the Board Installation on June 24th and the Golf Tournament scheduled for August 19th.
So much going on for everyone, and a lot of fun as well.
The long awaited changes for the Montclair Plaza are moving forward. We have seen some artist’s drawings as presented at a recent Planning Commission meeting and they look very exciting. Recent news that the City brought back from a business event they recently attended, tells us that the name of the Plaza will change to “Montclair Place”. CIM Group (owners of the Plaza) state: “At Montclair Place, we are both – somewhere people love to be together, and a concept that bridges brands with ideas, creativity with community, and people with neighborhood. That’s why we are changing from Plaza to Place”. It is going to be very interesting and exciting to see the changes take place, it is going to be modern yet with a touch of the Plaza’s history. And it is going to be bringing a lot of new people into Montclair so that more people will know what a fine City it is and how many wonderful places exist for shopping.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored and attended the Police Recognition Luncheon. We had a record turnout! Next year we may have Dolce cater, but at a larger location. I think I said that last year, but for sure next year, we just cannot fit any more in at Dolce. Everyone loves the food, so I believe it possible that Alice will be doing the catering for the event.
We had a very successful ribbon cutting for Belle Dan’s with about 40 people in attendance. The food was very good and plenty of it. Thank you Mike and Angel. See Angel for that facial or a good neck massage at the end of a long day. And they offer so much more!
We are going to be swearing in a number of new Board Members this month for the start of the new fiscal year July 1st. We had the Paseos change ownership so we lost Traci Rivera, she stayed with her company and went to a new location; Bryan Pipp left Black Angus to fulfill a dream of opening his own beer tasting room in Grand Terrace. And one board member who termed out. Come and meet the new and the renewed board members at the Installation lunch on the 24th! Thank you for your response to the ballot, lots of good comments and more voted this year than have in some time.
We are excited about the increased participation at all of the events. The new members are active! That is fun! Come to the events and meet all the new members.
See you at the breakfast meeting on the 11th!
