HSJ Chamber of Commerce event draws more and more businesses

This past Friday, October 4, the Hemet-San Jacinto Chamber of Commerce kicked off the month with their “First Friday celebration.  Attendees were pleasantly surprised by the robust crowd.

“What a great time and event to kick off the month of October and do so with a full house at DVAC (Diamond Valley Arts Center),” said Hemet-San Jacinto Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cyndi Lemke.

“This is a great event for us to announce our annual “NAMI Walk” for NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness,” said Brenda Scott, Executive Director of NAMI-San Jacinto, adding, “The walk begins at the Diamond Valley Lake Marina at 8am on October 26. We are also announcing the tentative date for the Soroptimist’s “Jingle Mingle” fundraiser which is set for December 5th at the Diamond Valley Lake Visitor Center.”

Award-winning realtor Kevin Saunders (Brubaker-Culton Realty) was on hand to help with

festivities.  “What a great event for business people and entrepreneurs to network with some of the most inflectional citizens within the valley.  I recommend that everyone attend the First Friday event every mont,” said Saunders.

Onlookers cheered as Soroptimist inductee Sandy Dee was given her pin. “I love working with our veterans and I’m very proud of the work I’ve done with the Cloverlane Foundation,” said Dee.

Readers are urged to mark their calendars for the Chamber’s next “First Friday” event scheduled for Friday, November 1 at 8am.
