The Ambassadors had an information packed meeting on Tuesday morning. After Mayor Roy Edgington thanked everyone for their support of the 9/11 ceremonies, Peggy Gray announced the Grand Opening of the Fernley Republican Women’s Republican campaign office. The Grand Opening is scheduled for 4-6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17 at 140 E. Main St., Suite C. Several Republican elected officials are scheduled to talk and attendees will be served BBQ.
Kelly Brye announced the opening of two Chamber Director positions. Four candidates, Troy Pefley, Ellen Tudor, Kelly Brye and Penny Phillips are running. The election closes Sept. 28. Brye also told members about the Fernley Chamber Quarterly Luncheon scheduled for 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28 in the City Council Chamber. Certified business coach, Sean McCarthy discusses the “Way to Wealth Business Formula.” Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
The Precious Paws Society’s Jennifer Pinkerton told the Ambassadors, “Our Trap, Neuter and Return program is very important to control the feral cat population. An unspayed female cat produces 2 litters each year and in just 9 years, there would be more than 11 million cats.”
The primary goal of the Precious Paws Society is to find loving homes for Fernley’s homeless, abandoned animals. Additionally, the Precious Paws Society assists with the cost of spaying and neutering animals, vaccinations, medical procedures and transportation to and from veterinary visits.
Finally, Carol Del Carlo, who is running for the Board of Regents, District 9, discussed the importance of Community Colleges.
“We’ve done our students a disservice by telling them they all need to go to a 4 year college,” Del Carlo said. “Most jobs do not require a 4 year degree. Seventy per cent of job training can be obtained from a Community College.”
The Fernley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors meet at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday mornings at the The Golf Club at Fernley.
