A thankful time of year at the chamber
By: Robin Trimble, Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce CEO
Fall is the time of year when the weather cools, the leaves change and we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. It’s also a time of year when we reflect on those who we’re thankful for. At the Rocklin Chamber, we have much to be thankful for and many to be grateful to. I am so fortunate to have supportive and generous board members, ambassadors, staff and members. Our board members and ambassadors put in countless volunteer hours chairing committees, attending ribbon cuttings, supporting new and renewing members and attending Chamber functions and events. My great team, Megan Hemming, Julie Reyes and Christine Chrisman, always take the time to go above and beyond the call of duty and are continuously on the lookout for opportunities to support Chamber members. Our members work hard to make an impact in the community, all while supporting the Chamber with its many functions and events. I am also thankful for the steady leadership of our city government and appreciative of local civic leaders like Kathy Lund who have faithfully served our community. Ms. Lund was first elected to the Rocklin City Council in 1985 and has since held six one-year terms as mayor of Rocklin, in addition to serving in many other roles. Ms. Lund will be retiring from the city council after 25 years of service. Kathy has been a role model and inspiration to many in the region and I am honored to call her my friend. So during this season of thanks, be sure to take some time to remember those who you’re thankful for – a little gratitude can make a big difference.
