Planning, Education and The Holidays!

Did you know that the Escalon Chamber has a scholarship program?  In conjunction with the University of Pacific and San Joaquin Delta Community College, the Escalon Chamber of Commerce has set up a scholarship program for members of the chamber to educate local workforce in skills necessary for thriving competition in a business environment, encourage the accomplishment and growth of local businesses and workforce through new and updated tools, assist new businesses in achieving success by expanding the educational resources available.  

Members of the Escalon Chamber of Commerce will be able to link to the sites of both UOP and SJDCC through the Chamber website,”shop” for classes and seminars that may be beneficial to their business or employees, and sign-up for the classes and seminars through the Chamber.  On a first-come -first-served basis,two applications (tuition and lab fees) will be paid by the Chamber each trimester.  In December - California Real Estate Preparation for Test, Notary Republic Renewal Training or CCDDE Training Courses are examples of what is available.

More did you know:  The Chamber is represented at both the City Council and the City Planning Commission, or that we have outreach to other Chambers in the area through the 120 Adventure.  Events we sponsor or contribute to: Sundays in the Park, the Wine Stroll, Park Fete, Citywide Yard Sale, Farm to Fork Dinner, Christmas on Main, the Hospice of San Joaquin Tree of Lights and Christmas in Grandpa’s Barn to name a few.  We achieve all this with a small dedicated group of volunteers.  If you should like to participate in any of these activities, please contact us at

This month we are working on our three activities for December by coordinating with the City and other community entities for the Tree of Lights.   Our committees for Christmas activities are well into the preparations for the Parade of Lights and finding vendors for Christmas. If you wish to participate, information and forms are located on our website.  We will also sponsor Santa in Grandpa’s barn on December 5th.

Stay safe as the days grow darker and as always, Think Escalon First.
