  • Networking Luncheon Every Third Wednesday

    Join us this Wednesday, November 15th from 11:30-1:00 at Lake Receptions for a networking luncheon. Our speaker this month is our very own Chamber Director, Jack McDonald.

    Jack McDonald is a third generation Lake Countian, a Mount Dora High School Graduate and a Veteran. He spent 6 1/2 years in the Army, attaining the rank of Captain, is a Master Aviator and a retired Lake County Investigator. Jack will speak about PTSD, Vietnam, and returning to Vietnam 40 years later. A slide show will also be shared. 

    In the spirit of celebrating our veterans, we invite you to bring photos of your favorite veterans to share on a display table during the luncheon.

    We will also assemble care packages for homeless veterans during the pre luncheon networking. Feel free to bring items of your choosing. Suggested items are water bottles, socks, gum, mints, band-aids, soft snacks, and toiletries.


  • Second Saturday in Sorrento

    Join us on the second Saturday of each month at the East Lake Chamber for a delicious pancake breakfast complete with sausage, juice, and coffee for only $4. Come on out and connect with your neighbors and local businesses, while supporting your community and chamber.

  • Eat and Shop Local

    This time last week we were all in major prep mode in anticipation of Hurricane Irma. We sincerely hope that some sense of normalcy has returned to you and your loved ones. Just a reminder that the grand opening event we had scheduled for Saturday, September 16th on our chamber grounds has been postponed and a new date will be announced soon. Please #eatlocal and #shoplocal this weekend. Our #eastlake businesses were disrupted by the storm and could use some love and support. #community #comingtogether #experienceeastlake
