Oakley Chamber Mixer February 2013 – Edward Jones

Past Event Tags: Brentwood, Chamber Mixer, and Edward Jones.

We had a great turnout for the February 2013 chamber mixer at Edward Jones, even though it was all the way over in Brentwood. (That’s right, you can join the Oakley Chamber of Commerce if you live or work in Brentwood. Or in Antioch. Or Concord. Or Bethel Island. All you need are clients or customers who come from Oakley.)

The staff of Ackerman & Towson Dentistry down the hall crowded in to join hostess Jennifer Jost, her office manager  and the Oakley Chamber board (Chamber President Sallie Goetsch of WP Fangirl, Chamber Vice President Jimmy d’Amico and his wife Brenda of the Black Bear Diner, Chamber Treasurer Diane Lasher of Di’s Impressions, Directors Darci Bowen of Sutter Delta and Stefan Didak of Ignyter Software Development, and office manager Lynn Stahli), as did several others including Cindy Thomas from Wine Shop at Home, Deb Dutcher, the Energy Unlimited Coach, Dori Anderson and Hal Hutchens from Cypress Lakes Realty, Tom Cusack from Scruffy Dog Productions, Theresa Bragg and her daughter Renee from The La Grande, Dave Hansen from Ridgewater Real Estate, Jeff Scalier from Blue Star Heating & Air Conditioning, Roger Strauss from SDG Architects, Theresa Galvan from Unique Visions, Kristen Harjo from Silpada Jewlery, Fred Ginsler and Sonia Beasley from the Brentwood Press, 2012 Chamber President Doug Scheer of Scheer Security, and last-minute arrival Dr. Margaret Stahler of Madrona Naturopathic Healthcare, who was two-timing us at the Brentwood Chamber Mixer.

Members were encouraged to visit the Chamber website to check their profile pages for accuracy and submit photos, logos, and other information (such as deals and special offers or upcoming events) to webmaster [at] oakleychamber [dot] com.

We announced upcoming events such as TechPalooza, Spring Into Oakley, and the Poker Tournament. (You can buy your tickets here on the website if you missed the mixer.)

The winner of the drawing for the $100 Visa card for renewing by January 15th was Laura Cunha of Stonecrest Lending.

The food was provided by Dino’s Sandwich Shop, which is owned by Jennifer Jost’s office manager Renee Isola and her husband Robert. Everyone raved about the tomato soup in sourdough bread bowls, the garlic spread, and pretty much everything else, which is all of a piece with the Yelp reviews, so I suppose we can forgive them for being in Brentwood. (Especially if they wanted to join the Oakley Chamber of Commerce.) You can read an article that Oakley Chamber member Charleen Earley wrote about Dino’s in the Press.
