Greater Orange Chamber of Commerce

From the desk of Ida Schossow

I have a friend who is a teacher that has always told me her summer is half over on the Fourth July 4. It sounded odd to me the first time she said it, but as the years have gone by, it does seem to be true. I look at the calendar and it is already August and I wonder where did the summer go? School will be starting this month, so remember when you go school shopping to shop Orange County first. The casual encounters you enjoy at neighborhood businesses builds relationships and community cohesiveness. Remember to look for the Come In We’re Local signs on the doors.
