Although the sun was almost a no show at the Valley Center Chamber of Commerce’s first “SunRiser” for 2019, members of the business community gathered outside the Chamber office this morning to kick off the New Year. The chilly weather failed to detract from the warm and cozy community spirit as attendees expressed excitement for the year ahead promoting and supporting local businesses.
PVI was pleased to sponsor the event, which also introduced the new Chamber Executive Board for 2019: Bob Hunsaker (Krueger Realty), President; Brandon Strausbaugh (PVI), Vice President (both pictured above); Kim Cucinella (Krueger Realty), Secretary; and Sam Beckett (SWI Financial Services), Treasurer.
Christian McHugh (RockI.T. Information Technologies), Immediate Past President, shared several of the Chamber’s accomplishments from the past year and encouraged attendees to take advantage of the Chamber’s free advertising opportunities for members, a valuable benefit of membership.
As the event sponsor, PVI had the opportunity to introduce its Team Members, who each shared a little about their positions and activities at PVI. As Valley Center’s Most Trusted Independent Insurance Agency since 1978, PVI is proud of its standing in the community and works every day to earn and maintain that position.
PVI Team Members (l-r): Diane Wick and Phyllis Knight (Marketing), Maricruz Avelar, Brandon Strausbaugh, Brooke Dunn and Justina Strausbaugh.
Special thanks to Eric Jockinsen (Erik Industries), Chamber Board Member, and Marian Walters, Chamber Executive Director, for setting everything up early this morning! Also, thanks to Julie Stroh/BStroh Events and Catering, for the delicious breakfast!
Today’s event was a great start to 2019! PVI is looking forward to continuing to support our local businesses and organizations throughout the year.
Happy New Year!
