The Ramona Chamber of Commerce provided the crafts. Another major error.

The arts council worked with children on activities there, as seen in the photo and video, and they told me their volunteers provided the cookies, so in that sense, they "provided" activities, while the chamber was the overall sponsor, as reported.

The Chamber of Commerce provided crafts. I was involved in the planning of the crafts and I can tell you that it had nothing to do with Arts Council. They may have done the cookie booth, but the actual crafts were done by the Chamber. I was involved in the planning of the crafts and Susan White of Ramona Disposal, Ambassador got everything together and Sally Westbrook, Ambassador and newly elected Director and Holly Romo, Chamber Staff, manned the booth. Its a shame that the people who work so hard serving our community don't get credit for the work they do.

Thank you so much Ms. Knott for all your hard work and dedication to the community. Happy?

It wasn't about me...its about shabby reporting. All I did was sit in the meeting. Not looking for props. But alot of people worked hard and someone else got the credit.

Ms. Knott, I would suggest you start yourself a blog here and set the record straight. I believe Julie would welcome you with open arms.
