Ribbon cuttings are always a joyous event, for it signals the start of a new venture, and so they are inherently full of the hopes and dreams of a successful business.
And so it was for Rose Cremation Services on the evening of November 6. Rose Cremation’s owners Robin Snow and Christal Vargas-Leyva, along with members of the Bellflower City Council (including Mayor Santa Ines) and the Bellflower Chamber of Commerce cut the ribbon signifying the official Grand Opening of Rose Cremation services. Also in attendance were members of surrounding Chambers of Commerce, including Artesia and Garden Grove. Tacos, beer, and margaritas were served during the event.
Prior to cutting the ribbon, Bellflower Mayor Santa Ines gave a presentation to Rose Cremation Services. Co-owner Christal Vargas-Leyva said, “We wouldn’t open anywhere but Bellflower.”
After Ines, a representative of Assemblymember Cristina Garcia gave a presentation. Vargas, good natured and witty, retorted without hesitation, “We wouldn’t open anywhere else but California.” This second quip drew many laughs from the 50 or so people who gathered to witness the ribbon cutting.
