Cindy Spindle retired June 30 from her role as CEO/President of the Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce after eight and a half years of service.
“A big thank you to my assistant, Sunny Ruvalcaba-Medel, who is the sweetest person to work with,” she said.
“Our Chamber is the best in Orange County thanks to our Board of Directors who devote many hours to the business community. The City of Garden Grove staff have been wonderful to work with to help make Garden Grove the best place to live, work and play.
“I will miss you all, but I treasure the many friendships I have made and look forward to the next chapter of my life as my husband, Paul, and I travel in our motorhome over the past two coming months.”
