As a newly minted member of +The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce, I joined in the ribbon cutting for Areli's Celebration Hall. The Hall is very nicely decorated with a capacity of about 350 people.
I like the accent lighting they have used throughout the place, which makes it easy to get around when they turn off the main lights.
Mayor Salinas was able to attend the ribbon cutting and to congratulate the handsome young couple who are the proprietors. I'll contact them later to bring you more details about the Hall. The owners had their hands full making sure that the event was well-coordinated. It seemed that they had an entertainment program for the evening. I think in future I should interview in advance of the ribbon cuttings.
I did have the opportunity to meet some of the other members of the Chamber's Go Mission Team, which is a rebirth of the old Diplomats group. It was good to meet some people in the group so soon after becoming a member. I look forward to making new friends this year.
Well, this was just a brief update. I'll be back soon.
