The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce was part of a four-chamber mixer held on Thursday, August 4th at Lantern Crest Senior Living with the Santee Chamber, the Lakeside Chamber and the Alpine Chamber. This was a historic moment as these four chambers joined forces at Lantern Crest Senior Living, who happens to be a member of all four of these chambers of commerce.


Lantern Crest staff were gracious and served delicious refreshments and beverages to all of the guests and shared the new Villas under construction at this beautiful property. Guests were greeted on the first floor by all (4) respective chamber member representatives and then urged to begin their journey by visiting the beverage station, the food stations or the fabulously decadent dessert stations. It was truly a “feeding frenzy” with everyone smiling and having a wonderful time. Docents were on hand to provide tours of the Villas under construction to see what true senior living is all about! This evening was finalized by all the chambers giving away “tons” of FREE raffle items donated by all of the chambers, as well as Lantern Crest Senior Living.


We thank Jetta Russell, Director of Sales and Marketing who spearheaded the entire effort and was the gracious host of the evening and her fabulous Community Sales Coordinator, Karina Cunningham for all they did to make our evening so special. Chef Mario did an outstanding job on the food preparation – it was delicious. Thank you, Chef Mario, and thank your entire team for the time and attention they devoted to this evening mixer! We look forward to continuing this tradition next year with this gracious member and host.
