(There was Chamber of Commerce Weather over the weekend)……That may have been part of why the event was so well attended.
The event was the 29th Annual Welcome Back Snowbirds Breakfast. It was held Saturday at the Barbara Worth Resort and Country Club. There was some concern that may be a problem. Barbara Worth was a new location. The event is normally held at Stark Field in El Centro. The El Centro Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau was pleasantly surprised to find a line of about 275 people waiting for breakfast to be served. The Winter Visitors came to the Valley from as far away as Canada and various locations in the United States to enjoy the pleasant winter weather in Imperial County. It is estimated that over 1,000 Snowbirds enjoyed breakfast prepared by Los Vigilantes Chuck wagon Crew, El Centro’s official greeters. The annual event is the El Centro Chamber’s way of providing a warm welcome and a big thank-you to the winter visitors for choosing Imperial Valley as their winter destination.
