Early in June, the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors treated the residents of BayView to an ice cream social. The Ambassadors are the volunteer arm of the Chamber. Several times each year they participate via the Community Outreach program to benefit some segment of the community deserving of a little tender love and care.
Several Ambassadors accompanied two ice cream laden rolling carts through the halls as they popped their heads into each room to inquire if the resident would like a refreshing, sweet treat. Residents were served their choice of chocolate or vanilla ice cream, with whatever toppings they desired.
Residents were delighted at this unexpected treat before the end of their day. Amy Capo of St. Augustine Key Realty is the Community Outreach Chair for the Ambassadors and helped to organize the event. Past efforts have served the Children’s Home Society of Florida, Betty Griffin, St. Francis House and many others. Capo is also planning an event to honor veterans in the near future.
Marty Lewis is the current Chair of the Ambassadors and encourages any company that wants to be a bigger part of the community to join the Chamber and the Ambassadors by calling Erin Johnson at (904) 829-5681.
