Event Update
The 2nd Annual Cops & Robbers Ball will be held on the evening of Saturday, May 4, 2013 at the Community & Cultural Center.  This year we will be honoring three community members with our 2nd Annual Public Safety Award.  Please help us in congratulating our 2013 honorees:

Marc Darnell, Mike Klyszeiko and Steve Balbo

 Marc, Mike and Steve make up the leadership team of the MHPD's Volunteers in Policing program and are being honored for their many hours of volunteer service to the Morgan Hill Police Department.  For more information on this invaluable program, please see the MHPD's website.

Highlights for this year's event include a hosted reception, a catered dinner by Mama Mia's, the premier wines of Clos LaChance Winery, a silent auction and dancing to the tunes of Top Shelf - the band.  Each couple will also receive a complimentary photo with the MHPD '55 Olds.

Tickets are $95 per person and are available online at, at BookSmart or from any committee member listed below.

Message from our President

James Keen    


2013 promises to be very eventful for CLEF and we have many opportunities for sponsorships, to advertise or to just giveback.  


On March 14th, we will be sponsoring a business lunch for Chamber members where the MHPD will explain how to identify counterfeit money and what to do when you think you have received it.  


May 4th is our 2nd annual Cops and Robbers Ball. You don't want to miss this event. Tickets are going fast!  


May 12th-18th is National Police Officers Week and we will again be hosting the Chamber breakfast on May 2nd. The guest speaker will be Police Chief David Swing, who will discuss the state of our city from the Police Department's perspective. 


Please visit our website for a full list of events, sponsorship opportunities or to purchase your tickets for the 2nd annual Cops & Robbers Ball.
