The Chamber set up a new office at 9309 E. Commerce Dr., Suite 5, in Churubusco, next to Farmers & Merchants Bank. The office and all utilities are donated by Greg Veerkamp and Farmers & Merchants Bank. The new phone number is: (260) 229-6766.
Lee Prescott has taken over the duties of Executive Director for 2013, replacing former director Dee Dee McCoy. McCoy resigned after several years of service to the Chamber, citing the time commitment involved both with the Chamber and at work at Parker Insurance, where most of the Chamber business was conducted. She also said that she felt it was time for new people with new ideas to become involved in the Chamber.
Prescott will be available at the new Chamber office on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The Chamber holds a monthly meeting the second Thursday of each month. The time and location of each meeting will be posted on the Chamber Facebook page the week prior to the meeting. In 2013, meetings will be offered at various times, rather than the traditional lunchtime meeting.
