Please take a few moments out of your busy day to realize how precious life is and say a prayer for those who were lost in the 9/11 tragedy. Chamber members: Do you have something special going on in your business that you want the community to know about? If yes, then e-mail or call me by noon on Mondays and I will include it in the column of that week. How’s that for advertising? The Chamber is here to help you and the more your name is out there, the better it is for you. This Saturday is the third annual Artwalk on the beautiful sidewalks of Honolulu Avenue; make sure you check it out. Our kick off mixer for Oktoberfest will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 1 at Citibank; hope you can make it!

The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce will receive a 75% discount on police services for Oktoberfest this year, but this will be the last time, the Glendale City Council decided Tuesday. The annual event, scheduled for Oct. 4 this year in Montrose Village, has received the discount since 1981. Under a newly adopted city policy, the event would qualify for a 25% reduction. Fees involved are $14,900. With the discount, the chamber pays $3,608. According to chamber vice president Jane Kane, the event would lose money if the full fee or 25% discount were applied.
