East County Business News – La Mesa Chamber will host ribbon cutting at Sports Clips on Aug. 21

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting for Sports Clips Haircuts at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Complimentary beverages and light refreshments will be served. The new business providing hair styling for men and boys is located in the La Mesa Springs retail center, 8034 La Mesa Blvd. Owners Chris and Cammie Formo have combined the feel of a legendary barbershop with a sports atmosphere by offering neck and shoulder massages and steamed towel treatment. Large flat-screen TVs play sports at each stylist location, as well as in the lobby. The shampoo area includes massage chairs. The website is www.HaircutMenLaMesaCa.com. To RSVP for the Chamber’s ribbon cutting, call (619) 465-7700, ext. 2, or send an e-mail to rsvp@LaMesaChamber.com.
