It is our pleasure to welcome the youngest member of our Chamber family - Ethan Wesley Moreno!
Diana and Julian Moreno (Web Design Pilot) welcomed their second son Ethan on Tuesday, November 19th, 2:28pm, at Mission Viejo Hospital.
Ethan was born a healthy 8lbs, 6oz and 20.5 inches long, with all 10 beautiful fingers and 10 cute toes and a full head of hair. Ethan's older brother Aiden is super happy to have a little brother to play with.
We take this moment to again congratulate the Moreno family on "our" new Chamber addition and thank Diana (who serves on the Ambassador Committee and is the Communications Committee assistant) for all of her "labors " of love on behalf of the Chamber and her fellow members!
