We helped Kolache Factory Bakery & Café celebrate their Ribbon Cutting this morning. There was a great turn out of guests there to support them. Be sure to stop by to try their wonderful pastries which are made out of a yeasty and slightly sweet dough filled with meats, cheeses and fruits. They have 25 different kolaches to choose from and they are all made fresh daily.
See the pictures below of those who attended and enjoyed some great coffee, kolaches and business networking. They are located South of the 5 Freeway at 14091 Newport Avenue, Tustin, CA.
There was a lot fun and happy golf players at our Golf Tournament that we brought back after a few years. Our venue was at Tustin Ranch Golf Club and they helped make this event great.
Tustin Auto Center was a major sponsor and had several cars on display from their different dealerships. Tustin Lexus provided a Lexus IS250 as the prize for our hole-in-one contest. No one made the hole-in-one so they will have to try again next year.

It is with both pride and humility that I succeed Ned Smith as Chairman of Board for the Tustin Chamber of Commerce. As a member of the Tustin Chamber Board of Directors for the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to witness, first hand, Ned’s dedication to the role of Chairman and the community of Tustin at large. Ned remains on the board as Immediate Past Chair and will continue to provide guidance to both myself and the board at large. I hope that my tenure as Chair reflects the same dedication to the role that I witnessed in Ned’s. I inherit a veteran board, and tremendous amounts of positive momentum, giving me great confidence in our ability to grow the Tustin Chamber into its full potential.
The Chamber of Commerce is a unique institution where Government, Public Services, Commercial Interests and Civic Organizations intersect. It is a place to find common ground to provide mutual support for our shared interests. It is, in short, where we meet to grow and strengthen our community. This year we support that vision by building on our recent success. By growing our Health Fair, and adding an education component, we showcase essential services in our community. We’ll be bringing back the Leprechaun Leap, which raises money for worthy causes while raising Tustin’s profile in the surrounding region. Lastly, moving forward, the board will focus time and energy on improving the value of the chamber membership, to better serve the businesses, organizations and individuals who serve Tustin and our surrounding communities. Thank you.
