Minding your Business — VC chamber of Commerce Sunriser

September 04, 2013

It may be hard to believe we are in September already, but at least that means it’s time for another Sunriser at the Valley Center Chamber of Commerce. As they do on every first Friday of the month, the Chamber will host a breakfast get-together at their office on Sept. 6. The Chamber is located at 29115 Valley Center Road, Suite I-3 (just around the corner from the Country Deli).

The time of the Sunriser has changed slightly from previous months. It will start at 8 a.m. instead of 7:30 a.m., but will continue to run until 10 a.m. A local tradition since February 2012, the Sunriser is a perfect opportunity for locals to meet for some great company and share the latest developments in local business. The event is free of charge to members and non-members alike.

“It’s just a casual open house setting where people can come in and get a light breakfast and do some networking,” said Mary Gordon, speaking for the Chamber. The food changes every month, and this Friday is certainly not one to miss.

“This week we’re going to serve waffles with toppings,” said Gordon.

A common topic of conversation may well be the upcoming 2nd Annual Block Party and Taste of Valley Center, which will be hosted by the Chamber on Oct. 5. Applications for booths at the event were due this week, and Gordon says they have already received a good number. The Block Party will take place at the VC Community Hall and will feature giveaways, samples, and coupons from local businesses.

If you can’t make it this week, there’s always the Chamber of Commerce Sundowner on the evening of Thusday, Sept. 19. Dr. Greg Carlson of Valley Center Smiles and Dr. Liliana Hernandez of Valley Center Orthodontics will be hosting this month’s Sundowner at 13826 Woods Valley Road.
