From the President -
The holiday season began on a sad note this year with news of the passing of Kathy Jones. Kathy was a dear friend and tireless supporter of the Chamber. Her dedication to Fair Oaks was expressed in many ways that will not fade from memory. What first comes to mind is Concerts in the Park, which she led with gusto for years and years and helped make it a great summer music season. She displayed the same dedication in arranging and leading the charge for the Fair Oaks Fiesta and Christmas in the Village parades every year until this last year. She served faithfully on the Chamber Board of Directors as president and secretary. She was also our Honorary Mayor this past season and raised money for a favorite project to complete a walking trail in Phoenix Park.
We all miss Kathy very much. A memorial honoring Kathy will be held on Saturday November 23rd at noon at the Community Club House. All who knew Kathy are invited to attend.
