The South Lake Chamber of Commerce Ambassador’s Breakfast is one of the business community’s favorite annual events. It’s where table sponsors compete for best-decorated table and attendees vote by ballot for the best-decorated table.  It’s where Chamber Ambassadors are recognized and the new Ambassador Chair is announced by the traditional passing the scissors from the existing chair to the new ambassador chair.  It’s where the event sponsors get an opportunity to proudly speak about their organizations/businesses and where new members of the Chamber are announced.

It’s where attendees have the opportunity to be entertained by the talented members of East Ridge High School Rhythm of the Knight

This year the Ambassadors’ Breakfast was held at the Wesley Center.

Granny Nannies (Mary Lou Burdette-Wieloszynski) and Laughs for the Troops (Ron Feingold) sponsored and were speakers at the event.
