Sadly, I've just learned of Hazel's passing. I worked for the CVB in Concord back in the 90's and loved being the Sales Manager! What wonderful memories I have of her and what she taught me within the industry. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Hope there are cats in Heaven!

I met Hazel in 1986 when I first started working for the Concord Chamber of Commerce. She held a special place in my heart & she will be truly missed. I just moved back to Fair Oaks, CA a month ago & Hazel was one of the people I wanted to reconnect with. I would consider it a privilege for be part of any memorial celebration. Email is Arnlund@att.net Please keep me posted.

Hazel was truly a wonderful person that was dependable if you asked her for help. In the 25 years with the Bureau, she generated a lot of revenue for Concord and the County. Working with her at the Bureau as the CEO was a tremendous learning experience in the hospitality business. More importantly, she a true friend not only to me but also to my family. We will miss her dearly. Love you Hazel.
