This Months Chamber “Hot Topic’s” Breakfast Reveals New Executive Director, VFW Expansion & SBA Info

By the Alpine Chamber of Commerce – October 2018

This month’s meeting of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce , known as the “Hot Topics Breakfast,” provided interesting information about:

— The Small Business Administration which also helps home-based businesses. (There are many of them in East San Diego County.)

—-The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber has a new executive director.

—-The Alpine VFW Post is going to double in size over the next two years

Small businesses in Alpine and the Mountain Empire can often find help through the U.S. Small Business Administration. That was the message on Oct. 9 at the monthly “Hot Topics Breakfast ‘“meeting of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce. “Start. Grow. Expand. Recover,” Jamye Pritchett Solorzano, economic development specialist administrative officer for the San Diego office, told Chamber members and guests at the Descanso Junction Restaurant in Descanso.  “That’s our motto.”

Every year, Solorzano said, the SBA provides billions of dollars to help businesses get started, grow, expand or recover from disasters. “Small business also includes working at home,” said Pritchett, who lives in Alpine and was raised in the area.   “We want to deliver quality service for East San Diego County.”

The SBA offers free or low-cost counseling and training to help businesses thrive and become government contractors. It also works with community development organizations and approved lenders to offer microloans and SBA-guaranteed loans.

In other business at the restaurant at 8306 Highway 79, Chamber Vice Chair Bob Ring announced that Alex Ward will be the new Chamber executive director. Ward starts on Monday, Oct. 15, said Ring, Alpine Barons Market manager. Ward is familiar with Alpine, the Mountain Empire and marketing. Most recently he has been director of operations for the Gaslamp Quarter Association in downtown San Diego.

The association creates major marketing programs for the thriving Gaslamp’s shopping, entertainment and dining district. “Alex, I think, is going to take it (Chamber) to a whole new level,” Ring said.

During self-introductions, Carl Silva, Quartermaster of VFW Bert Fuller Post 9578 in Alpine told the group that over the past five years the Post at 844 Tavern Road has grown and become a meeting place for the public as well as a popular venue for gatherings and events. “The post has voted to double in size over the next two years,” Silva announced.   It will be a very difficult project, he said, because —- among other things — the post is on top of a hill.

The Chamber will hold its annual Installation Dinner for its board members and Ambassadors at the VFW Post at 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29.  The $40 cost per person includes appetizers, dinner and a spectacular sunset view.
