Chamber of Commerce Business Mixer at Folsom Lake Bank

Starting off the 2008 New Year with a fun networking event, the Folsom Chamber of Commerce held a Business Mixer at Folsom Lake Bank, 915 Sutter Street. The event was Tuesday, January 15th, starting at 5:30 pm.

A good time was had by all and there were a lot of business introductions.

The business card draw was popular – as you will see in the video below, with plenty of prizes. Prizes were donated by Karen’s Bakery, My Brother Vinnie’s, Scarlet’s, Hair by Denise, Barrel Tasting, Lake Natoma Inn, Procissi Cellars and Folsom Lake Bank.

Several announcements were made – see video – including the “State of the City” event, Thursday, January 24, at Lake Natoma Inn.

At around 7pm, we thought they were giving us the hint to leave, because all the lights dimmed. It turned out they have an automated timer to save power, in case the lights are inadvertently left on.
