‘We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.’
We ended May with a beautiful remembrance of our fallen heroes on Memorial Day. Our observance at the Montrose Vietnam War Memorial (on the corner of Honolulu Avenue and Oceanview Boulevard) had to be kept private this year due to the city’s current guidelines on holding events. However, we felt everyone’s spirit with us and we were overwhelmed with the community’s response to the Memorial Day Remembrance video we presented alongside the Montrose Shopping Park Association on our website and social media platforms. A special thank you to: Congressman Adam Schiff, Senator Anthony
Portantino, Supervisor Kathryn Barger and Mayor Paula Devine for their touching message contributions to the video. We are here today because of all of those who have served, fallen and sacrificed for our country. Watch the Remembrance video on our website MontroseChamber.org or visit our Facebook, Instagram, or Youtube accounts.

Oktoberfest will resume this year on the first Saturday in October! We look forward to releasing more information about it as it becomes available.
