Congratulations to the Irwindale City Council and Huy Fong Foods in their successful resolution of a recent issue that received quite a bit of media attention. The Irwindale Chamber values the presence of Huy Fong Foods in this community and appreciates the fabulous product they produce and the important role they play in building the region’s local economy. We want them to continue to operate in Irwindale and to continue to grow and prosper. We look forward to assisting them as they look to expand in the future.
As we enter the holiday season, I think about all the things that I am grateful for. I have a wonderful family and good friends, a great job, good health, a home. I’m never hungry. As I reflect on the things and people that make my life good, I also think about all those people that are not so lucky. There are still so many that are unemployed, trying to make ends meet as we slowly recover from a deep recession. There are those kids that, through circumstances that they did not cause, are lost and troubled. There are those that are suffering with bad health, difficult home lives, and tough economic times; there are those that are hungry and not sure where that next meal is coming from.
