Our monthly membership breakfast this month featured Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas. He spoke about the proactive efforts he has made to combat the gang influence in Orange County areas. Providing phenomenal results his programs have provided neighborhoods with relief from gang bullying and violence. His basic message was that if the community gets involved, the gangs go away! Neighborhood watch programs work. People who care about their homes and parks make a difference.
While we in the Tustin Chamber always appreciate and honor our Police Officer of the Month, on the morning after the shoot out with Chris Doner there was a special attitude evident. Officers Ryan Coe and Bruce Williams were honored for solving a 20 year old cold case. Chief Jordan updated us on the latest regarding the Doner situation, it was very emotional for everyone. Attendance was on the rise and we even had to open up the room at Tustin Ranch Golf Course to allow for more tables. We look forward to seeing you all at the March breakfast and at the Leprechaun Leap 5K Race on March 16th. Check out the pictures from the breakfast.
