East County Chamber’s First Friday Power Breakfast on Nov. 2

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 San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce will host its “First Friday Power Breakfast” at 7:15 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, at Sycuan Casino’s recently remodeled
Paipa’s Buffet, 5469 Casino Way, El Cajon. Kaiser Permanente is the breakfast sponsor. If a Chamber member brings a potential new Chamber member, both people may attend at no charge. Most of the program will be devoted to networking, the Chamber said. For more information and to RSVP, phone the Chamber at (619) 440-6161, or visit www.eastcountychamber.org.
