It looks like the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce is going to have another banner year as it embarks on continuing to be a leader in the community.

I would like to congratulate businesses and companies who were selected to participate in the Class of 2012-13, including Terry Cecchi of Folsom Lake Bank, Donna Chabrier of Outside In, Rock Clum of Valley Yellow Pages, Suzi deFosset of The Gathering Inn, Donald Delach of First Northern Bank, Nic Delyon of Delyon Wealth Management, Donna Dotti of Placer Valley Tourism, Susan Duane of Duane Benefits Solutions, Rita Gordon of Rita Gordon Images, Nathan Jay of Umpqua Bank, Ammar Majeed Mandhai of Koeller Nebeker Carlson & Haluck LLP, Anthony O'Brien of California Department of Justice, Jamie Pepin of Roseville Fire Department; Robert Pierce of Farmers Insurnace/ Pierce Insurance Agency, Marcus Reed of Roseville Fire Department, Colin Roe of Fidelity National Title, Vanessa Ryan of North Valley Bank, Brandon Sessions of TRI Commercial Real Estate, Michelle Sheidenberger of the city of Roseville, Sharon Telles of RE/MAX, Uugii Tsenddorj of Roseville Chamber of Commerce, Lisa Velarde of KIDSFIRST and Ashley Wynne of Placer County.

Want to start your week off on a good note? The “Monday Meet Up Happy Hour” is an informal get-together for chamber members. It happens Aug. 27 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at P.F.Chang’s China Bistro. The “Monday Meet Up Happy Hour” provides a relaxed, after-hours atmosphere for networking.

I also want to remind readers that one of Roseville’s most popular events, Splash, is just around the corner. Held at Roseville Aquatics Complex, Spash provides entertainment ranging from the Harmonics Steel Drum Band to a karaoke lounge and a performance by the dance-inspiring 80z All Stars. A number of artists will be displaying their work throughout the event. Splash is the perfect opportunity to sample Roseville’s finest eating establishments, along with tasting blends from regional wineries and local beer brewing companies. Plenty of non-alcoholic beverages will also be on hand. For those planning to sample a good amount of beer and wine, Splash offers the Driver Please service, which guarantees a safe ride after the event. For more information about Driver Please services, visit

Tickets for Splash are going fast. Those who purchase tickets now can avoid paying more at the door. The $60 pre-event price includes everything Splash has to offer. To buy some, stop by the chamber office at 650 Douglas Blvd, or visit Hope to see you there and I’m making a promise the weather will be great.
