Show Me the Money, Fair Oaks!

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG)  |  By Dot Boyd, Fair Oaks Chamber

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - The finish line is in sight for our two candidates competing to be the 40th Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce Honorary Mayor! Will it be Jim Cralle’s campaign for the Fair Oaks Rotary Foundation or will it be Keith Wright’s campaign for the Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank? The candidate who raises the most money by Sept. 11, 2018 will be the official winner! Since the program’s inception in 1979, all of the candidates combined have raised over $380,000 for our community! Assisting the candidates at many events are the members of our Youth Community Board, consisting of current and past Jr. Honorary Mayors, Miss Fair Oaks Ambassadors and the current candidates for those honorary positions. Outgoing youth dignitaries will receive scholarships from FOCC for their year of service. Who’s next? Join us on Sept. 12th at North Ridge Country Club where all will be revealed at our celebratory Honorary Mayor Reception! Seating is limited so get your tickets now at or by phone at 967-2903.

Concerts in the Park 2018 is wrapping up on August 16th, after ten weeks of live music in Village Park. Huge thanks to our community partners, sponsors, musicians, attendees, and the countless volunteers selling food, drinks, ice cream and t-shirts each week!  Oh yes, and a big thank you to Del’s Pizza for donating all of those delicious pizzas!

Please don’t shoot the messenger, but our 35th Christmas in the Village event is a little over three months away! It’s time to submit your applications to be a vendor, a sponsor or to participate in the parade on Sat. Dec 1st.

We invite you to use as your resource for choosing a local business from our business directory including our brand new members and sponsors, to view our event calendar, to donate to the candidates and more. We appreciate your support!

See you in Fair Oaks!
