“I would first like to give a round of applause and thank you to all of the sponsors of tonight’s event and the annual fund raiser committee,” he added. “Without them this evening truly would not be possible.

We recently held a board strategic planning session and from that came many things, but in particular a new mission for the chamber of who we are, as well as a vision statement of where we are going and who we will be.”
