Monthly Chamber Civic Affairs

[divider line_type=”Small Line” custom_height=”75″ divider_color=”extra-color-1″]

We indeed had a “Fireside Chat” with Kathleen Odne, Interim Executive Director of the Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation on our Back to Business  – Non-profits and the new reality webinar.

Kathleen gave an in-depth glimpse on both the sides of the coin of how the non-profits are trying to thrive during the pandemic. Financial and funding ripples, programming disruptions, lack in fundrising options, decrease in volunteers are some of the struggles but at the same time non-profits are becoming more digitized and trying to evolve with new norm with high-level of engagement with the local governments, civic and advocacy organizations to name a few.

The Holiday Season Will Lose Some of Its Sparkle!

[divider line_type=”Small Line” custom_height=”75″ divider_color=”extra-color-1″]

Walnut Creek On Ice, one of our most popular annual attractions, is being put on pause this year because of uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus crisis. This week in October typically begins the rink construction, and soon, passerby would see the giant tents going up that start the countdown to the Children’s Winter Festival and 10 weeks of skating fun.

The Chamber and the Walnut Creek Downtown want to thank all of our loyal sponsors, 40,000+ skaters each year and all the onlookers who have made Walnut Creek On Ice part of their holiday tradition for fifteen years. We plan to be frozen and back in Civic Park again next year!
