The final breakfast meeting of 2016, had an overflow crowd that were able to share in the morning’s high energy activities. The sponsors of the breakfast were Carl Burger Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World and Hornbrook Center for Dentistry. Carl Burger Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World is currently remodeling their showroom, offices, conference area and property to make them a new and must-see location when shopping for a vehicle. We thank them for their investment in our community and for showcasing their property which is a beacon for people driving into La Mesa – off of Highway 8. Kyle Nyswonger, the General Manager of the dealership introduced his staff and we thank him for being a consistent sponsor of our breakfast meetings.

Our other sponsor, Dr. David Hornbrook, of Hornbrook Center for Dentistry is a well respected dentist and ranked as one of the top three Dentists in the world. Dr. Hornbrook is a La Mesa native and graduated from Grossmont High School. The attendees were entertained by Dr. Hornbrook, as he shared his knowledge of new dental technology that has revolutionized dentistry. Dr. Hornbrook also encouraged attendees to include oral screening that is instrumental in cancer detection in their routine check-ups.

Our featured speaker of the morning was Senator Joel Anderson, who chose to share interesting facts and legislative information and how things done in Sacramento. He gave a history of past bills he has authored and an update on bills that he is working on for businesses. The Senator has a distinct understanding of the role that government plays in the success of all of the business community. The morning concluded with the awarding of lots of prizes that were donated by: Marie Callender’s, Hornbrook Center for Dentistry, EmbroidMe – La Mesa and the Chamber. Thank you to all of these businesses who support the La Mesa Chamber and donate to our various raffles and activities. The lucky cash winner of the morning was AAA Imaging owner, Pete Celestino! Congratulations to all of the morning winners and a HUGE thank you to Joe Flaherty and his Marie Callender’s staff for the great job they do to make our breakfast meetings such a pleasure!
