A Fond Farewell

Posted December 05, 2012 in Community Featured, Johnston

Outgoing 2012 board members: Jolene Goodman, Jennifer Schaefer and Lynnette Rohrs.

Wow — time flies when you’re having fun. What a fun year we’ve had in the Johnston Chamber. It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve as the Johnston Chamber President over the last year. What an outstanding opportunity to connect with so many wonderful people.

I’d like to start by reviewing a few of the Chamber’s accomplishments in 2012:

• Hosted 11 Breakfast Before Business events

• Hosted nine Business After Hours events

• Hosted nine Monthly Chamber Luncheons

• Welcomed 20 New 2012 Chamber members

• Held 13 2012 ribbon cuttings

• Successful Educator Appreciation event — one of our largest ever — hosted in the new location at Camp Dodge Freedom Center.

• Successful Green Days event, despite being held the only rainy weekend of the entire summer.

• Successful Annual Golf Outing ‚ a beautiful outing on a beautiful day

• New full-time Chamber Executive Director position — congratulations, Heather.

• All-new Johnston Chamber logo.

I’d like to finish with a final thank you to the entire 2012 Johnston Chamber Board for their time, commitment and support throughout the year — what a great team. Special thanks, recognition and a fond farewell to outgoing board members who have completed their terms: Jim Carney, part president Jolene Goodman, Lynnette Rohrs and treasurer and Green Days co-chair Jennifer Schaefer.

Happy holidays to all Johnston Chamber members along with the entire Johnston community.  Please join us for upcoming 2013 Chamber events. You’ll be glad you did.
