SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Russell Kerr, Dana Point
Thirteen years ago I arrived in Dana Point not knowing one person in town.
I joined Edward Jones Investments and launched my own financial advisor business from scratch in a new office at Monarch Bay Plaza. Last Friday, June 6, dozens of clients and friends joined me at Luciana’s Ristorante in a delightful celebration of my decision to retire.
Looking back over these years, I have to say that Dana Point is a fabulous place in which to have a business. The residents are friendly, the city well managed and the location is both convenient and attractive. Also, the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce provided me the opportunity to meet lots of people and I quickly made many friends through the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club.
People are asking me what I am going to do now. I plan to enjoy and celebrate even more of what Dana Point and our local communities have to offer. I am sure my successor, Tammy McKennon, will continue to appreciate all that this wonderful community has to offer.
Having had the privilege of living and working all over the world, I want to thank all Dana Point Times readers for making this community a great place to do business and a fabulous place to enjoy retirement.
