Summer activities are right around the corner. Our first Sunday in the Park is on May 7th from 11:00 to 3:00. Once again there will be flowers planted and Mother’s Day gift cards made along with entertainment and a few surprises. This is the third year for this free activity and the kids love it. Please share with your parent friends who do not get this email. In June we will be celebrating Father’s Day with another First Sunday event. Save the dates now.
The Wine Stroll is May 11th and the Facebook pageis already up and sharing the vendors as they apply. An addition to this year’s wine tastings are several vendors with some unique items to purchase along with two fun games to play. Tickets are available at Cromwell and Ney and online at our website, escalonchamberofcommerce.org. All online sales tickets will have their glasses set aside. Remember this is an adults only event.
As chosen from our drawing for memberships, the Business of the Month 4/15 - 5/15 is The Learning Tree. It was stablished in 1979 when it was determined there was a need for quality child care in the Escalon area. We started with one preschool site in Escalon. They now have an enrollment of about 200 young people in their 5 locations. Their main concern is the whole child. They are interested in helping each child reach his or her potential in all areas of growth, including: cognitive, emotional, physical and social. They make a commitment to offer a happy and loving environment in which a child may thrive and be challenged yet still feel a strong sense of security and unconditional support.
We are looking forward to handing out two scholarships at the end of this school year thanks to all of you who have participated in our fund raising events. Tea and Trumpets is solely for these scholarships, but 10% of the profit from all other events goes to the scholarship fund. Just a little something we do for the community. There is still the possibility of applying for our continuing education scholarships as well. Information is on the website.
As always, Think Escalon first
