The San Bruno Chamber of Commerce hosted its 2016 Installation of Officers and State of the City Address luncheon on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at Skyline College. Over 90 community members attended the event in the Fireside Dining Room. Skyline College is proud to host the annual event as it has become a tradition. Twenty-six employees of Skyline College attended the event to support Pcyeta Stroud, who was installed as a San Bruno Chamber Board of Directors member representing Skyline College. We certainly demonstrated how committed our college is to being a partner of the City and the Chamber.
Attendees enjoyed a lunch buffet courtesy of Pacific Dinning and were welcomed by Jamie Monozon, CEO of the San Bruno Chamber of Commerce. Marty Medina, Vice Mayor of the City of San Bruno led the Pledge of Allegance and Pat Neilson, 2015 Chairman of the Board for the San Bruno Chamber of Commerce reviewed the myriad accomplishments the chamber realized in the last year. Some of the accomplishments mentioned include the most well attended and successful Taste of San Bruno event in the history of the chamber and a stellar Chamber of Commerce staff who support the agenda of the board members without fail.
The Mayor of San Bruno gave the State of the City Address, focusing on the plans for the funds available as a result of the PG&E pipeline explosion which promoted the establishment of the San Bruno Community Foundation and the exciting new development plans for the transit corridor on San Mateo Ave. He also announced that construction will begin shortly on a multi-story housing and retail building on the former site of the movie theater on San Mateo Ave.
A special presentation of proclamations to recognize the dedication and service on the board of Cherie Colin from Skyline College and Gwen Daly were presented by Marc Hershman from Senator Jerry Hill’s office, Ben Cohn from Assemblyman Kevin Mullin’s office and David Burruto from Supervisor Dave Pine’s office.
