WELCOME TO THE CARPINTERIA VALLEY CHAMBER’S NEWSLETTER Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King, Jr. Taking the initial stride in opening a new business can indeed be daunting, but with a dream, hard labor, discipline, capital, patience, and tenacity, the vision can become reality! We are proud that Carpinteria has numerous long standing businesses that have taken the stairway to success. Valley Barbers will be commemorating 77 years of business on August 17th with a Ribbon Cutting. Robert J.

Chocolats du CaliBressan will host an Anniversary Ribbon Cutting & Mixer on October 25th in honor of their 10 Year Anniversary.
