THE VOICE

The Newark Chamber of Commerce hosted their 4th Annual Community Western BBQ & Auction at the Newark Pavilion on April 4 and it was the best ever. The Highway 4 Band entertained with great country music and two special guest singers -- Newark's own Mayor Dave Smith and Christine VanHoy, 2007 New Music Weekly Female Country Singer of the Year. Newark Police Lieutenant Tom Milner was our honorary Sheriff of the evening and made arrests for inappropriate behavior like wearing a Hawaiian shirt to a Western BBQ. The offenders were hauled off to our jail and eventually got bailed out by buying additional raffle tickets or singing. The dinner was enjoyed by all. Thank you to Cattlemens Restaurant and the donors listed below. Mayor Smith led a spirited auction and Pat Danielson and Sharon VanHorne were masters at selling raffle tickets. The end of the evening featured dancing to the music of Highway 4. If you missed this year, you missed a great event. Watch the Voice of Business and the Newark Chamber of Commerce Web site (www.newarkchamber.com) in the fall for the announcement of the date for our 5th Annual Community Western BBQ & Auction next

What is an Ambassador?

The Newark Chamber of Commerce is in business to help businesses. One way of gaining exposure for you and your company is to become an Ambassador for the Chamber. The Ambassadors are the link between the Chamber and its members. Being an Ambassador provides a great opportunity to network with members of the Chamber and with the business community as a whole. The duties and expectations of being an Ambassador are to attend functions, whenever possible, and to help new Chamber members to feel welcome through encouraging members to participate in the activities and functions of the Chamber, and to help promote the Chamber in the community. Many of the Ambassadors eventually become members of the Board of Directors. Being an Ambassador of the Chamber is very rewarding. Ambassadors meet on the first Wednesday of each month at Round Table Pizza on Thornton Avenue in Newark. If you are a Newark Chamber of Commerce member and would like more information about becoming an Ambassador, please contact co-chairs Jackie Pena (Home Savvy Inspections) at 5730367 or Gene Daniels (State Farm Insurance) at 445-0900. - Linda Ashley, CEO

For more information call Linda at the Chamber office ­ 510-744-1000

Menu will be Chicken Parmesan. Vegetarian available only if pre-ordered (no exceptions). Cost: Member - $35 (includes FREE Trade Show table) Non-Member - $45
