Chamber dinner

Guess what I heard

Remember that the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual installation dinner at Tenaya Lodge in Fish Camp on Friday, Jan. 17. Cocktails begin at 6 p.m. with dinner following at 7 p.m. This is an important event because they install new officers, say good-bye to old officers, honor the man and woman of the year (Dale Miller and Sue Graham) and announce the Lifetime Achievement Award. I always enjoy this event.

Shuttle service for $15 per person is available. If you're interested in taking the shuttle, the pick-up point is at the Oakhurst Community College at 5 p.m., and leaving Tenaya at 9:30. You need to call 683-7766 for shuttle service. If you plan on having wine with your dinner, I would advise using the shuttle service.

There are also special room rates at Tenaya of $115 plus tax and fees if you decide to spend the night at the Lodge.

How many of you have taken a tour of the new "Form Fitness?" It is now open in the Raley's shopping center and ready for business. The equipment is new and plentiful. They have special rooms for the little ones so mommies can work-out, a bicycle room, a huge room for volleyball, basketball and Zumba and Yoga classes.

The people are nice and friendly and very helpful. They answer all your questions, and you just can't beat that. You can open the door and to take a peek at what they've done — it's impressive and really first class all the way.

The new chamber directory, including a calendar of events, is coming in late February. The directory will have a listing of all the businesses in town alphabetically and a buyers guide by the business type. It will be a slick, full-color magazine and is being published by the Sierra Star. Sounds great, doesn't it? If you want to advertise in it, you better call or stop by the Star right away as I understand the cut-off date is near.ks.

Have you had the urge to do a little toe tapping or swaying to the beat lately. If so, you need to be at the Elks Lodge on Jan. 10 for their second Friday night dinner and dance.

The exciting thing is that the first 30 minutes will be devoted to learning Tango — you know, the dance of love.

This is a fun dance and after the first 30 minutes, you can dance the night away. The dinner is at 6 p.m. and the dance starts an hour later.
