President’s Report – October 2020
It’s October! Bring out all things pumpkin spiced including lattes, pies, and candles! What an insane year it’s been!! It’s crazy that it’s the last quarter in 2020 and we never really began! But we’ve learned, we’ve sanitized, and we’re coming out swinging and better than March 2020! As we near this God-awful year, our Community Service Committee is asking for donations for our Holiday Toy Drive. From October 1st to December 11th, drop off new, un-wrapped toys and cleaning supplies to the Greater North County Chamber office to help families in need in our community for the 2020 Holiday Season!
