On Friday, April 14, ALVC members attended another grand reopening at Walmart at the Saviers location in Oxnard. Mariachi Trio Parlenque kicked off the event with a mini concert. There were booths set up with vendors handing out samples and promotional items, an Oxnard car club, and even the Pillsbury Dough Boy! Everyone there helped celebrate the remodel of the store.
Jeff Aemmer, the Manager of the store, welcomed everyone and thanked them for their support. He also gave out three $1000 community grants of which Assistance League® of Ventura County (ALVC) was one of the recipients. Several ALVC members showed up to help celebrate and accept the check, including Nila Arensberg, Sue Root, Wendy Eales, Teresa Porter, Cindy Daly, Martha Flournoy, Michelle Beltran and Eileen Whalen.
Thanks again to Nila for her diligence in pursuing Walmart grants for our Operation School Bell® program. To date, they have donated over $10,000 to our program. We are very grateful for their support and were happy to help them celebrate their grand reopening!!
