The Colusa County Chamber of Commerce Lunch Mob is back!
After nearly a year in coronavirus lockdown, Colusa County business representatives and local partners gathered once again for an informal lunch at a Colusa County restaurant.
“It’s great to be able to do this again,” said Chamber Manager Jennifer Diaz. “But while we are in the purple COVID tier, we will only be gathering at restaurants that have outdoor seating.”
Lunch mop is something like a “flash mob” that selects a local restaurant monthly for a quick infusion of cash. The event is also a great way for Chamber members to network and exchange information, said Colusa County Chamber President City Campbell, of All Star Reality.
The group gathered Feb. 24 at La Autentica De Colima, located at the corner of Bridge and Carson streets, for authentic Mexican food.
Last week lunch mob also included Bob Klotz, of Comfort Keepers; Jennifer Jelavich, communications coordinator from the Colusa County Office of Education; Vickie Speegle, of George Petersen; Chamber Vice-President Lynn Spivak; and Chamber Board members Colleen Wysinski, and Kellie Wilson, of Robert Burt Construction.
Colusa County Economic Development Director Kristy Levings stopped by for a brief introduction, but was unable to stay for lunch.
The Colusa County Chamber of Commerce serves the businesses of Colusa County by connecting them to area residents, visitors, and other businesses.
The Chamber office is located at the Colusa Business & Visitors Center, 2963 Davison Court, just off Highway 20 in Colusa. The office is also home to Colusa County Bounty, which keeps a supply of products from Colusa County’s small businesses available for purchase.
The Chamber’s newest addition is Beth’s Beauty Bars, Diaz said.
The Chamber also has Jeffrey Ranch Pecans, Blackshire Almonds, Pendell’s Honey, D & P Jalapeno Jelly, River Road Lavender products, and Kittle’s T-shirts available.
The location of the next Chamber Lunch Mob has not yet been selected, but Diaz said they hope to keep it monthly as COVID-19 cases in Colusa County continue to trend downward.
