Montrose–Verdugo City Chamber:

What a Super Bowl! With a score of 27/23, it was very intense and well played by both teams. As I have mentioned before, my house is “Steelerized” so we were obviously very happy with the outcome. This now means my family will want new gear. I spoke to a friend of mine who was there at the game and has attended over two dozen Super Bowls; he indicated this was the best game he’d ever been to.

If you know Rick Dinger or have only heard about him, you must come to Crescenta Valley Insurance on Wednesday, Feb. 11 to celebrate 40 years in the business. This will be a dual mixer for both the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce and our Chamber. The festivities begin at 6, lasting until 8 p.m. CV Insurance is located at 3923 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta. Did I mention it is free admission…?

If you’re a Chamber member and you have something you would like the community to know about your business, please contact the Chamber and I will put it in this column.
