posted Jul 24, 2016, 3:04 PM by Ashley Miller   [ updated Jul 24, 2016, 3:05 PM ]

We are excited to announce that member organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of SLO, has received some well deserved recognition recently with the National Agency of the Year Award! BBBS SLO was one of six agencies recognized during the 2016 National Conference Gala held in Orlando, Florida in late June. Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County was recognized as Agency of the Year in the Small to Mid-sized agency alliance category for building strategy that led to diversified funding and low employee turnover helping to provide the best leadership for their community.

Board President Christie Clemons said, “It’s wonderful to be recognized as best in the nation! But this award, and the life-changing work we do, wouldn’t be possible at all without on-going support from so many individuals and local businesses throughout San Luis Obispo County. The real congratulations go not just to us, but to every one of our volunteers and donors. I also want to add that we are very fortunate to have an exceptional staff that is proactive, hardworking and thorough. They are an extremely dedicated team!”

“These agencies and boards show extraordinary leadership and have huge impacts in the communities they serve,” said Pam Iorio, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. With over 300 agencies across the country, Big Brothers Big Sisters serves nearly 170,000 children (“Littles”), their families and 170,000 volunteer mentors (“Bigs”).

Featured Member - Water Gap Saver

posted May 9, 2016, 10:34 AM by Ashley Miller

We wanted to share a little more information on our current featured member of the SMCC - Water Gap Saver!

The Water Gap Saver was designed and developed for the use in fencing on the ranch and farm. It is designed to reduce or eliminate the time and labor it takes to clean out or rebuild water gaps, when water gaps flood and fill up with debris on your fence crossings. In most cases where it would take hours to clean out or rebuild a water gap, now in can be reduced down to minutes saving time and money.

The Water Gap Saver

We encourage you to go check out this great tool that could save you hours of time, not to mention cost savings.

Find out more information at http://www.watergapsaver.com.  They have even added some informational videos to show the Water Gap Saver in action!

The San Miguel Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the event,  would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Ed Whippie of Team Auto and Collision for sponsoring the 4th Annual Toys for Tots Car Show and Shine in San Miguel on December 5th.
