Jamie Monozon, Chamber CEO, welcomed 80 attendees to the event, which was held Jan. 7 at Skyline College in San Bruno. Ruane reviewed the city’s important 2013 events and achievements; however, his focus was on some significant opportunities on the horizon for 2014, a very special year for San Bruno due to its Centennial celebration. “When San Bruno was officially incorporated, this was a small rural town of about 1,400 residents,” said Ruane. “Early San Bruno’s primary business was agriculture, with ranches providing food, dairy products, and flowers for the urban San Francisco population. Today, with our 42,000 plus residents, San Bruno is known as a community with a heart renowned for our beautiful parks and friendly well-kept residential neighborhoods; as a regional transportation hub; and now, as a thriving high-tech business center.”.
