By Jerry Bernstein

Cerritos Mayor Jim Edwards gave the oath of office to Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce President Linda Frisbey and members of the Board of Directors members at the chamber’s 49th annual installation luncheon held at the Sheraton-Cerritos Hotel June 7.
Outgoing President Ann Smith thanked her Board of Directors for their support and the city of Cerritos “for its great support of the Chamber,” and the members who answered the telephone when she called. “This past year we have faced many economic challenge,” she said.” On the other hand we have added new members and many valuable services to our members. With Linda at the helm I’m sure additional programs and services will be added.”
Upon being sworn in by Mayor Edwards as the Chamber’s 2012-13 President, Frisbey said she has “such respect and admiration for those who preceded me. I am honored to be here today.” She said, “When my sister and I were growing up we did not realize times were not easy for anyone. As we all know, difficult times continue to be with us today. It’s up to us to reach out in our community and help our neighbor, buy in our own neighborhood, and enjoy our own surroundings.” She said, “We at the chamber are here to do just that. We must continue to have plans of growth for our future. We will get beyond these difficult times. We have done it in the past and will do so now. “ She concluded by saying, “A person is only as big as they dare to live.”
