Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce Is Greece-Bound

Chamber members and other interested visitors are invited on a 10-day trip this fall.

Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce members and the general public are invited to participate in the chamber’s Familiarization Trip to Greece this fall. The price for the Oct. 29-Nov. 7 visit is $2,799 per person based on double occupancy. Travelers who make their trip reservation deposit before March 20 will receive a $100 discount.

“This trip to Greece is an opportunity for travelers to learn about ancient as well as modern Greek culture and build bonds for the future,” said Maxine Kelley, the chamber’s office manager and the local trip coordinator.

The 10-day trip includes round-trip international airfare from to Athens, Greece, from Los Angeles International Airport on board regularly scheduled airlines; transfers to LAX from Carpinteria and between Athens airport, the hotel and the cruise ship; four nights at a first-class hotel in Athens; hotel luggage handling; a city tour of Athens; a full day tour of Mycenae (Argolis) and tours of the Parthenon and Acropolis; visits to Olympic Stadium and Royal Palace; 17 meals including all breakfasts, four lunches and five dinners, including a Greek festive dinner show; a four-night Greek Isle cruise sailing to Mykonos, Rhodes, Santorini, Crete, Ephesus and Patmos; as well as a unique opportunity to meet with business leaders in Athens — all accompanied by English-speaking tour guides.

A free information and orientation meeting will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday at Rincon Beach Club, 3805 Santa Claus Lane. The tour operator from Chamber Discovery Tours will be present to answer questions. All those who have made reservations as well as any interested guests are encouraged to attend the presentation. RSVP by 3 p.m. Friday to 805.684.5479 x10.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
