The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce held its annual installation and community awards dinner on Jan. 26.

Held at the Angeles National Golf Club, the event was an opportunity to introduce the chamber’s incoming officers and directors while acknowledging the work done for the community by civic leaders.

The passing of the gavel of president was a quick exchange – from the left hand of Scott Trulik to his right as he undertook the duties for a second year.
