This month’s lead sponsor:
IMAGINING – AND BUILDING – THE FUTURE OF SLO
A group of community leaders traveled to Colorado back in 2017 to kick off the Chamber’s economic vision update. Much work has been done since, and the blueprint is ready for its big reveal. 2019 Chamber Board Chair Clint Pearce, who chaired the vision committee, will lay out the bold plan – Imagine SLO.
GOODBYE DOG, HELLO PIG
As we say goodbye to the Year of the Dog and embark on the Year of the Pig in a couple weeks, the Central Coast Chinese Association’s Phyllis Wong will relate the meaning of the colorful celebration in Chinese culture and share her experience with the rich heritage and close-knit community of Chinese Americans in SLO.
GETTING DIZZY OVER HERE
It’s been down. It’s been up. The stock market is all over the place recently, from the worst losses of the past 10 years to the biggest one-day gain. What’s an investor to do? We asked Wacker Wealth Partners’ Bob Wacker to provide some perspective on the market’s wild swings and an outlook on the bumpy ride ahead.
THAT’S A LOT OF FLOWERS
If you tuned in to this year’s Rose Parade, you probably saw Cal Poly’s space-themed float, named the event’s most extraordinary. We invited Sara Novell, a mechanical engineering major who led the team of student builders, to share what went in to creating the design, one in a long line of history-making Rose floats.
BEFORE YOU BITE INTO THAT CHOCOLATE…
As confectioner-in-chief at Mama Ganache, Ben Taylor knows chocolate. And following a trip to Africa, he also knows what it takes for cocoa farmers to grow the raw ingredients and why fair trade is critical to their future. We asked him to share highlights of the experience and what to consider when selecting your sweets.
DANCING IN THE LUNAR NEW YEAR
One of the most recognizable signs of the Chinese New Year is the traditional lion dance, which the Cal Poly Lion Dance Team has been showcasing for more than 60 years. The lions promise to bring us good fortune, ward off evil spirits and put smiles on our faces in a colorful display of the ancient art.
