With a golf tournament upcoming and mixers and coffees getting booked for the fall, Escalon Chamber of Commerce officials are working hard at keeping a vibrant, active group in the community.

Chamber treasurer Annie Gallagher said the organization is definitely in a mindset of working cooperatively to promote the community and its businesses, from the fun golf event to the popular wine stroll in the fall.

"This is the second year for us for the golf tournament and last year was very successful, we were very happy," Gallagher said.

The annual tournament is scheduled for later this month, teeing off at the Escalon Golf Course on Saturday, Aug. 28.

"Sign ups are going well," Gallagher added.

Those interested in participating can contact Sal Sandoval at 639-3033, the chamber at 838-3531 or chamber secretary Maggie Martinez at 838-3561.

There will be lunch, raffle and awards following the tournament and near pin and putting contests will be featured as well. The $50 tournament fee includes 18 holes of golf, contest entries and lunch. Lunch tickets are available for non-golfers for $10 and there are sponsorship opportunities for businesses.

Also being sought are donations of raffle items and door prizes.

Gallagher said chamber leaders are also looking forward to upcoming events including the wine stroll and Christmas on Main. Serving as president is Pat Brown, with Michelle Sandoval as vice president, Martinez as secretary and Gallagher as treasurer.

"We are gung ho for those things coming down the road," Gallagher said of the future events.

Also, businesses interested in hosting either a morning coffee or an evening mixer to showcase their services can contact the chamber to set that up.

The goal is to give local businesses the chance to introduce their goods and services to the community while also networking with other chamber members.

"Starting in September we're trying to get as many booked as we can," Gallagher said.
