The Sonora Chamber Of Commerce Defined
The Sonora Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization representing the community of Sonora.
Shirley Sarno, chamber member, was Thursday's KVML "Newsmaker of the Day".
The Sonora Chamber of Commerce not only concentrates their marketing efforts within the Sonora area but they are also dedicated to raising the awareness of Sonora through tourism, and market the area as a tourism destination.
The Mission of the Sonora Chamber of Commerce is to develop an economically prosperous business district while maintaining the character and integrity of downtown Sonora, making it the "heartbeat" of the community.
The Chamber is active with many community projects, mixers, events and twice a year publishes a magazine called "Explore Sonora". In past summers, they also run the very popular "Music in the Park" series at Courthouse Park.
Originally called the "Historic Sonora Chamber of Commerce", Sarno said that the word "historic" has been confusing to many merchants. Any business within the Sonora city limits is welcome to be a member. That word (historic) is slowly being dropped by the Chamber.
To learn more about the Chamber call (209) 588-9625.
The "Newsmaker of the Day" is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
