Community Involvement

Your involvement in the Quartz Hill Community is an integral part of who we are as citizens and members of an involved chamber. Involvement in your community comes from voluntary work and simple participation.  Your reward for helping out is the pride in the community of Quartz Hill AND the testimonial that you care (and when you care about the community it becomes obvious that you care about a customer).

  • Grand openings
  • Ribbon Cuttings
  • Annual Installation of Officers
  • Committees
  • Almond Blossom Festival and Parade

Grand openings

When a new business opens, it’s a golden opportunity to help them into the community.  This is a critical time for the new business–they need to do everything they can to put themselves out there and more than likely funds are limited to do so.

That’s where you can help. Being there as a show of support, helping however you can on their magical day, and promoting their business wherever and whenever you can, will not only help them with the foothold in the community, but demonstrates to others you care and are in touch with community events.

Ribbon Cuttings

 

Ribbon Cuttings for a business is an announcement to the world that a business is exactly that–now open for business.  It’s a formality filled with fanfare by the Chamber ambassadors, the chamber members, and even the young chamber princesses.

If you’ve never gone to a Ribbon cutting you’re missing a great way to help “open the doors” of the business to the community.

And when people see a whole bunch of people convene at a business it really helps the business make their announcement visible publicly.

Annual Installation of Officers

A great chance for Members to meet other members, honor retiring officers, and welcome incoming officers. There is a dinner meal at a location, with members paying for tickets.

Committee Participation

Volunteer for one of our committees and meet other members who support the Chamber. Sign up for any of the following committees:

  • Almond Blossom Festival & Parade
  • Ambassador Corps
  • Budget & Finance Committee
  • Community Christmas Dinner
  • Jazz Festival
  • Membership Committee
  • Monthly Business Luncheon
  • Quartz Hill Community Queens

The Almond Blossom Festival

Began in 1948, the Festival and Parade are a wonderful way to welcome in the Spring and the blossoming of the almond trees. Alas, there are very few almond trees remaining in Quartz Hill (most almond trees now grow in Central California)
