Learn how to prepare your business and home for emergencies on Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Networking Breakfast, sponsored by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary.
Arcadia Service Center will also receive recognition as an Arcadia Business Icon presented by the Chamber in partnership with the Arcadia Historical Society.
Come out and join your industry peers for a morning of breakfast and networking from 7:30 a.m to 9 a.m. in the Sunset Room at the Santa Anita Golf Course.
Guest speaker and emergency disaster expert Bud Darling, owner of Safe N’ Ready, will be giving tips on ways you can be prepared for potential disasters and other emergencies for your business, home and family. Darling will be giving tips on getting informed, making a plan and preparing kits for emergencies that can happen at a moment’s notice. Located in Pasadena, California, Safe N’ Ready provides emergency supplies for disaster preparedness as well as local resources to the community.
This month’s Business Icon is Arcadia Service Center located at 40 E. Duarte Road, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. This recognition pays tribute to longstanding businesses in Arcadia for their ongoing contribution to the financial health of the City and to the historical cultural fabric of the community.
Arcadia Service Center was established in 1994 by two brothers, Samy and Simon Siriani, who attended Arcadia schools Holly Avenue, Dana Junior High, and Arcadia High School, and whose father and uncles owned six service stations in the area. They took over an auto dealership and specialized in superior mechanics. Since the death of Simon a few years ago, Samy and his five assistants continue to provide outstanding service.
As always, attendees of the Networking Breakfast (third Thursday of each month), sponsored by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary, not only enjoy a great breakfast buffet and valuable networking with dozens of others, but also introduce themselves one at a time with a 30-second “elevator pitch.” In addition, they have a chance to win one of multiple gifts donated by members and attendees for a business card drawing, one of which is a free three-minute Business Spotlight, this month by last month’s winner, Nyvette Gann of Insurance Solutions.
Tickets to the breakfast, which runs from 7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m., are $20 in advance ($25 at the door) and discounted to $15 for Chamber members who pay at least two days in advance ($20 at the door for Chamber members). Free admission for those holding a Chamber All Access Pass.
