I can’t believe this is my last article as your Chamber President. It’s been an honor and a pleasure serving. I would like to thank the Board of Directors, Chamber staff, the members of the Presidents Circle and the entire membership for all their hard work and support.

The City of Redlands is a wonderful place to live, but if you have a business here we have our challenges. The Chamber is here to help, support and lobby on your behalf, to be your squeaky wheel to improve conditions and pave the way to success. If you are not a chamber member this is the time to join and give us the help and support that will allow us to continue to assist all businesses in our area. Your voice can make a difference. Please make Redlands a great place to start and grow your business.

The holiday season is in full swing so shop Redlands first…it pays to support local businesses. Remember to bring in your receipt of $25 or more from local shops and receive a chance to win one of 2 $100 prizes from local businesses. (If your receipt is from a chamber member you’ll get two chances at the prizes).

Once again thank you for your support over the year and be assured I will continue to work to make the Redlands Chamber of Commerce one of the best in the region.
