This past weekend, the Chamber had the honor of hosting Oceanside's Annual Armed Forces Day Operation Appreciation. The event has been a community tradition for 15 years, as businesses from Oceanside and as far away as the East Coast come together to provide a day of free food, musical entertainment and children's activities for local active duty military families.
A special thanks to our presenting sponsors, Genentech, Pacific Marine Credit Union and WalMart, as well as dozens of other businesses who helped make this event possible. A full list of sponsors can be found on the event website.
We are also very grateful to the multitude of dedicated volunteers that did everything from serving in the food line to picking up trash. It was great to see the love and appreciation Oceanside's residents and business leaders have for the men and women who serve our country.
It's a privilege for our chamber staff to work with so many great people in providing this special day for our military!
Thank you to our talented Intern, Aidan Dressler for the photos below!
