Antioch, CA – The Antioch Chamber of Commerce new “Chamber Cares” program recently received a generous donation from Assemblymember Jim Frazier. The new donation along with the support of business owners that care will allow the Chamber to increase the support to local Antioch businesses that have been hit with vandalism to help defray the costs of clean up, fix up and repair.
Recently Delta Bowl has been a repeated target of vandals who have broken the front door with BB guns three times over the last two months.
Small businesses and business owners work long hours, invest time, money and love into our community to offer residents needed items and in this case family entertainment. Showing up in the morning to broken doors is disheartening and deflating, not to mention that each time costs $1500 to replace the needless act of vandalism.
The Antioch Chamber of Commerce was happy to visit the staff of Delta Bowl and owner Ken Melton with a check for $1,000 to let them know that the business community appreciates their work and wants to help them overcome the needless crime. The Antioch Chamber of Commerce cares.
Ken Melton, the owner of Antioch’s Delta Bowl has recently invested his resources to help make Delta Bowl a beautiful, safe and clean place to take your family for good wholesome fun. The investment included separating part of the bowling alley into a private rentable party place with special lighting, comfortable seats and a great atmosphere. He also added an awesome Laser Tag arena and a new Arcade. The next time you think about taking your family out for a good time please show Delta Bowl that you are grateful for their investment into our community and that you care and support them.
The Antioch business community needs the support of the City of Antioch. Recent lack of support for our police force from the City Council has caused a loss of officers, a decrease in morale and less ability for our police department to keep us safe. The loss of officers means less ability to patrol and deter these vandals. The City of Antioch must continue to fund and support our police department.
