Keeping busy in the Valley

“In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.” Lee Iacocca

The Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce is very happy to invite you to a ribbon cutting and open house for one of our town’s new businesses, Kumon Math and Reading Center located at 2754 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta.  Please join us this Saturday, June 12 at 10 a.m. for the official ribbon cutting, followed by an open house. Kumon is an after-school math and reading program that employs a unique learning method designed to help each child develop the skills needed to perform to his or her full potential. It is also the largest and most established program of its kind in the world. Children may enroll as early as preschool, and Kumon is attended by students throughout primary and secondary school. Kumon says that it is always preferable to start young and begin developing skills early to get the greatest cumulative benefit. Join us in welcoming Kumon Math and Reading Center to the Crescenta Valley.
On Saturday, June 19 it is time to clean out your garage and get rid of any e-waste you have gathering dust.  Bring your PCs, CPUs, televisions, CRT monitors, printers, fax machines, copiers or most other electronics to the CV Chamber office parking lot for e-recycling. Call the chamber if you have a question about what electronics they will take. Global e-Recyclers, Inc. is organizing this event taking place at the chamber office parking lot at Palms Plaza, 3131 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta on from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Global e-Recyclers, Inc. will make sure your e-waste is properly handled, disposed of and recycled. They also include identity theft protection via data destruction of your hard drives. Call the office at (818) 248-4957 if you have questions.
Don’t forget to reserve your space for an advertisement in our Best Business Directory. Last day is June 18 to secure your business’s advertisement in the directory. If you are not a member, you can still make sure your business is listed in our directory that is distributed to over 10,000 people in the Crescenta Valley. To have your business listed in this valuable publication is a benefit of membership in the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce which, for an annual membership fee starting at $99, is a fantastic deal. Then for a little extra you can even get an advertisement in the same publication, but only if you reserve by June 18.
So if by any chance you are feeling great stress or adversity, Mr. Iacocca says it’s always best to keep busy. The Crescenta Valley Chamber can help you be busy and turn your energy into something positive. Come join us!
