President's Blog, April, 2012

While reading about all the news surrounding March Madness, I began to think about how these teams get there.  Then too there is the hoopla as Spring training begins for baseball and the football trading taking place.  Which franchise will have the best team? This got me to thinking about the powerhouse teams that Escalon produces year after year.  It is simply by making the best of every player a small town school provides.  There is no trading, no recruiting just a strong belief of yes we can year after year.  It is all about team work.

Your Escalon Chamber of Commerce is also a team.  This is a team of volunteers who believe that by working together we can make things happen for the business community.  All of us have other jobs, but find time to put together events bringing the community and merchants together.  Just like a championship ball team each activity we plan takes lots of focused work and activity to make it happen.  We are grateful to businesses in the community who believe in the Chamber and support us through membership and by their sponsorship of our events.  Having members of the community helping us at the differing activities adds to success of each event, as well.  Just as in ball teams where the MVP’s change from year to year, it is the different starters (activity chairs) that supply added energy and makes the wine stroll, the golf tournament, or Christmas on Main so successful.  April brings our newly revised wine stroll with a Mardi Gras theme.  Details are on the website.

For our newest event, the Escalon Chamber of Commerce presents the First Annual Escalon Extravaganza...Join us for a lovely adult evening, stroll through the lush grounds of Creative Water Gardens while listening to the sounds of running water and live jazz, sampling deliciously catered appetizers while sipping a glass of wine and bidding on exciting silent auction items...all while meeting Escalon business members and viewing their wares together with others from our community. Admission is free!

I encourage you to become part of our Team--" Think Escalon First" by joining the Chamber this year and by becoming involved in the activities that "Suit Your Fancy."
