Dear <<First Name>>,

First and foremost I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays, filled with friendship, hugs and celebration! It has been quite the whirlwind year in all aspects of our society and community. There were definitely highs and lows for the LGBTQ community whether internationally, nationally or right here in the Old Pueblo.

Our Annual awards, have been announced---with Pride, Celebration and Recognition of  our Chamber members and those who support us. I wish I could expand the amount of awards so that everyone could get one!! Maybe you too will get one next year!

Here are the awardees: 

Thank you to award winners for their time, passion and dedication to the GLBT Community in Tucson!!

I also wanted to highlight another category within our membership directory in this letter. As it is the time of year to go out meet friends and family, please keep in mind our Restaurants and Catering members when you are picking a location to eat! Let them know you are a fellow member of the chamber and that you appreciate them being a member too! Additionally if you have a favorite restaurant or coffee shop, ask them to think about becoming a member!! 😊

As I wrap up my first year as your President, I wanted to personally thank each and everyone of you for your friendship, membership in the Chamber, and dedication to our community! Thank you to my Board of Directors for their dedication, time and passion to make this the best chamber in town!! And thank you to Melanie Cooley, our Administrator, without whom we would be in much disarray!!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Liane Wong
