Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, and grandmothers among us!
We have a lot happening this month. May 7th is the Mayor’s Prayer Luncheon; May 13th is the Police Recognition Luncheon; May 14th is the Breakfast meeting.
We had a great ribbon cutting on April 24th, which not only welcomed a new member but celebrated 60 years of a family business for Swedlows. Father Mark, and son, Sean along with Lupe their office manager (who put the event together) were there to welcome everyone. Mayor Pro Tem Carolyn Raft cut the ribbon and presented a plaque, and legislative representatives from Congresswoman’s Torres office; Senator Leyva’s office; Assembly member Rodriguez office; and County Supervisor 4th District Curt Hagman’s office all present certificates of recognition for the ribbon cutting and the 60 years of doing business. Swedlows provided a wonderful barbeque luncheon with all the trimmings to everyone who attended. There were about 50 people who came to the event, braving the threat of rain (which never appeared). Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves thoroughly! Congratulations again to Mark and Sean and their team!
We also celebrated a ribbon cutting ceremony for Szechuwan Gardens on April 14th. Local legislative dignitaries sent their representatives as Mayor Eaton cut the ceremonial ribbon. Owner/Chef Sam thanked everyone for attending and treated all in attendance to a delicious buffet style lunch. Everyone left with a full stomach and a smile. Congratulations to Szechuwan Gardens!
Some of you may be aware that Traci Rivera Property Manager at the Paseos has moved on to a new property in Wildomar. She has been serving on the Board of Directors, we will miss her as a member and as a board member.
Also, Bryan Pipp, Gen. Manager at Black Angus has left his position to open his own pub in Grand Terrance. This has been a long time dream of his and his wife’s. We wish him the best! We will miss him, too, as a member and a board member.
We have some marvelous members who have agreed to be nominated. So if you have not voted on the Board of Directors Ballot please do so, you have until May 12th.
The plans for the long awaited renovation of Montclair Plaza have been rolled out to the Planning Commission on April 27th. It is exciting to see plans being put together for all to see. Lots of changes and a new concept! It will be a great day when they can finally break ground!
