It is the time of year that the Chamber of Commerce presents its slate of candidates for the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee.  More importantly, it is also a time to recognize not only the Board of Directors but our entire team of individual volunteers.

While there are many forms of volunteering, a volunteer basically is a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking willingly without pay.  The success of our Chamber of Commerce and its work in the community depends largely on a strong, active volunteer force.

There are many ways a person can volunteer.  One of our efforts is to match your areas of interests and time commitment to determine what would be a good fit.  For example, our two largest events of the year; the Annual Golf Tournament on April 26th and our Annual Awards and Installation dinner on June 27th always need your help.  In addition, our standing Committees are available for you to participate.  The Ambassadors’ Committee is a natural for a person interested in networking and wanting to better our community.  The Legislative Committee provides a venue for you to get involved in the interests of business with government.

In most cases, your time commitment is usually no more than a couple of hours a month, and it a great way for you to give back a little to your Chamber and the Community. So, whether it is at the Board of Director’s level, a Committee member or just to help out at a Mixer, we look forward to your participation. Please give us a call today!

And always remember, if you have any suggestions for prospective new members or any comments, please contact me a call at 626-443-0180 or at ken@emsem.biz.  Visit our web site for current member-activity photographs at www.emsem.biz and click on Featured Member Activity Photos.  And of course you can like us on Facebook.

Equipment Helps Injured

School Crossing Guard

El Monte

If you recall, Maitee Estrada, a Mountain View School District crossing guard, was hit by a vehicle on April 10th.  Ms. Estrada was able to push a young boy from the vehicle’s path just prior to being hit.  After being thrown some 70 feet, she sustained multiple injuries that landed her in the hospital in critical condition.

Upon hearing of the incident, John Lawrence, owner of Lawrence Equipment Co., reached out with a donation of $5,000.00 for Ms. Estrada.  “Many of our employee’s children use Ms. Estrada’s crosswalk daily, Mr. Lawrence stated, “we just wanted to help and say thank you”.  In speaking to Ms. Estrada, she stated that she very grateful for such a generous donation when her family needs it the most.
