Pat Brown - President

After completing 30 years of teaching, 23 years in Escalon, I turned to volunteering at the Chamber to support my entrepreneurial side. I am a personal shopper for women with a company called Jockey Person to Person offering a dynamic line of clothes to fit all phases of a woman’s life. I provide in home shopping parties or individual fittings.

The Chamber has provided for me an opportunity to become more involved in our vibrant merchant community through our planned events, attending City Council meetings, and involvement in the Enterprise Zone. I look forward to adding to the activities we do by providing a series of workshops and forums to keep us on the cutting edge of business practices. The Chamber exists because as volunteers we share the vision to THINK ESCALON FIRST.   Please join us.

Judy Rigby - Vice President

I am currently retired from working the past 20 years as a commercial printer in Lodi. I moved to Escalon in 2010 and have been very active volunteering in the community. In addition to volunteering with the Escalon Chamber of Commerce, I volunteer for the Senior Lunch Program at the Escalon Community Center every week.

I am currently the 2012 Chairperson for “Fight Back - Relay for Life,” to be held in Escalon on June 2nd & 3rd.

My hobbies include quilting, specifically creating Jean quilts, crocheting and really anything else crafty! I love to read and have a blast spending time with my grandkids.

Maggie Martinez - Secretary

I grew up in Fremont, later lived in San Jose and worked in the electronics field, and over 15 years ago, moved to the central valley with my husband Mike and daughter Samantha. Mike and I have been married over 20 years and are very proud that our daughter is attending San Francisco State! We enjoy jeeping, camping, cooking together and spending Friday nights on our party boat! Embroidering is also a special hobby of mine.

I believe community involvement is extremely important. I decided to volunteer for the Escalon Chamber of Commerce because I enjoy being part of community events and believe that Chamber involvement is a vital element of a prosperous business community. I hope to see every business in our area become a member of the Escalon Chamber of Commerce!

Annie Gallagher - Treasurer

I started my career in the insurance industry in 1989. Prior to this, my background was in administration and marketing, which I continue to use every day when dealing with insurance companies and client issues. I have a BA in Business Administration and since receiving my degree have taken numerous classes necessary to stay current with the ever changing insurance industry.

My husband Michael is a teacher; I have one son, Steven, a step-son, Sean, and four grandchildren. I enjoy shopping, gardening, cruising and most crafts.

My past volunteer work has given me an appreciation of the needs for volunteers and non-profit organizations. I was a board member, and member, with the Manteca Chamber for a good number of years. I have helped start several non-profit organizations and have a strong belief that non-profit organizations make for a better community.

Being part of the Escalon Chamber Team allows me to share my past experience with them and to help the Chamber grow.
