I just adore Kerri Cobb. Many years ago I met her somewhere and told her if she was EVER looking for a job to come see us. She did indeed work for us way back when and Rick still quotes her to new hires. Our favorite Kerri-ism, “When I get ready for work I put my smile on just like I put my pants on”. Wise words. You probably know her as the Branch Manager at US Bank or a very active past President in Soroptimist OR one of the Board Members of our LoCaL Chamber of Commerce and heaven knows what else, she is always doing service for this community that she loves.
Recently Kerri invited me to the Reno-Tahoe Outdoor Recreation Show, she was looking for people that LOVE Lassen County. You KNOW I do. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend but I found her enthusiasm contagious, as usual. Kerri talked about all the tourism opportunities here, hiking, fishing, biking, quad riding, stuff we kinda take for granted like wide open spaces. How you can go to the movies for under $6 and though she didn’t say it I know she was thinking you can even get The Best Donuts On The Planet at Susanville Market. Okay, maybe I made that part up but we all know it’s true. Anyway, Kerri, along many other volunteers, gave out all of the brochures at the show and shared what a fantastic place we live in. We do live where others vacation.
Our Chamber has so many exciting events coming up, a Home and Garden Show April 29th AND on June23-24 they host the 25th Annual Main Street Cruise! The Main Cruise will be put on by our past and present Chamber Executive Directors~ Sue Eide, Kristen Volberg, Susan Christensen (past Director in charge of this event), Theresa Phillips and (current Director) Patti Hagata. We appreciate everything this fine group of women have done and continue to do for our community. They always need our support. If you haven’t already this is a great time to join the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce. To join, serve or volunteer give the office a call at 257-4323. Kerri told me she even thought of a slogan for the Lassen Chamber “Live, Laugh, Love, Lassen County!” Good stuff.
Since Kerri is also totally devoted to Soroptimist I MUST tell you their Margarita-fest is right around the corner and last year IT SOLD OUT. May 5th from 6-9pm will be all about Fun, Food, Friends and, of course. Margaritas it's even for a good Cause, Soroptimist mission as stated on their Facebook page is "to better the lives of women and children in our community.” We can all get behind that. Tickets are available at Margie’s Book Nook.
Thank you Kerri, Lassen County Chamber of Commerce and Soroptimist for all your Hometown Proud fun and spirit!
