Archived: Lincoln Heights Installs New Chamber of Commerce Officer, Awards Others


The Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce hosted its 92nd Installation of Officers Banquet last month, where Los Angeles Councilman Ed P. Reyes (CD-1) was on hand to swear-in the new Board of Directors as well as award several community members for their service.

“[The Chamber of Commerce] has been in the forefront of business development in Lincoln Heights for 92 years,” said Steve Kasten, past president. “[This organization] will continue to lead ‘Building Unity in the Community,’” a variation of the Chamber of Commerce’s motto.

The seven honorees were recognized at the Gala for their effort to continue this vision of unity and business development by fostering and preserving relationships with elected officials, city organizations, and school educators.

Past presidents Sampson K. Chan, JD, Steve Kasten and George Mirabal were honored for their dedication to the city. “Men of the Year” recipients included Ron Boltz and Arthur K. Snyder. “Women of the Year” recipients were Eva Castillo and Vivian Villaseñor. All have volunteered countless hours and efforts in numerous organizations that strive to ensure prosperity for the city.

More than150 business persons, community leaders and elected officials’ representatives attended the event held at Steven’s Steak House and organized by Gala Installation Chairperson, Gina H. Alonso.
