Happy Holidays from the Chamber!
  
On behalf of the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Staff, we wish you each a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a safe and healthy New Year!
 
As we all prepare for this holiday season and the opportunity to gather with our families and close friends, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the beauty of the season. This is the time of year when we enjoy happy moments with our loved ones, share meals and good times with our friends and associates, and celebrate the beginning of a new year. The La Mesa Chamber has adopted 22 seniors and are making this season the best it can be by providing food, cash and a  hot Christmas meal to them - many are home bound and all are on limited incomes. We are happy to put a smile on the faces of each of these deserving pillars of our community. Many thanks to our community partners: The La Mesa Rotary, Carl Burgers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World, North Island Credit Union, Sycuan Casino, Willie Williams and family, EDCO, and the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians.
 
Sincerely,
 
Mary England and the Board of the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce
