Montrose-verdugo City Chamber:

Congratulations to our very own Montrose Travel right here in Montrose for being selected Carnival Cruise Lines 2008 Agency of the Year. This is quite an accomplishment with over 30,000 other organizations in the running.

We are gearing up for our annual golf classic to be held on Thursday, April 23. This event is very important as it helps raise funds to support our scholarships for our very deserving students who would like to continue on to college. So if you golf, or just thought about golfing, come out and support these kids. It's not serious — it's just plain old fun. You say, “I don't golf”? Well, how about being a sponsor? Anything you could do to help would really be appreciated. The event will be held at the Verdugo Hills Golf Course with shotgun beginning at 1 p.m. Lunch will be served at noon.

How about an opportunity to have coffee with the cops sounds like a good idea, right? Well, on April 2 you can do just that. Show up at Oven Bakery and Café between 6 and 8 p.m. and have coffee with a cop. You will have a chance to ask questions, discuss complaints and concerns. The bakery is located at 3600 Ocean View Blvd. # 7 in Glendale.

We have a new member to introduce:

Verdugo Hills Contact Lens, located at 1808 Verdugo Road # 108 in Glendale. Contact David Drucker at (818) 790-1136 to find out what they have.

The Chamber is going green so you will receive more e-mails than regular mail from us. The trick is that we need your e-mail address, so make sure we have yours.

Is your business going green? Please let us know how you're doing this — we would love to hear from you.

Save the date: On April Fool's Day, Wednesday, April 1, the Love Shac — an expansion of Stix and Stonz Jewelry — will host our April mixer. Join us at 3528 Ocean View Blvd. from 6 until 8 p.m.

We know it's rough right now so the Chamber appreciates those who have renewed their Chamber membership dues including Chateau Salon.

The Chamber is located at 3516 N. Verdugo Road in Glendale and can be reached by telephone (818) 249-7171 or by e-mail

The Chamber is open on Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is closed on Fridays.

The Montrose–Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce “It's where you belong.”

MARIAN E. JOCZ is the executive director of the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce.
