  • Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce kicks off 2018 monthly “SunUpper” event with the Fallbrook Historical Society

More than thirty local business people and members of the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce met for a catered breakfast, socializing and networking on Thursday for the first “SunUpper” event of 2018.   The upbeat event was marked by broad optimism for 2018 and punctuated with old and new friends and business associates connecting to welcome in the new year.  The Fallbrook Historical Society, hosting the event in “The Barn” facility of the Fallbrook Heritage Center, kicked things off with a welcoming introduction from Society President Roy Moosa, showing off the restored 1850s luxury carriage that was the centerpiece of the room.  Breakfast offerings were nicely themed to the historical carriage and enjoyed by all.
