A dozen years ago leaders in Windsor Heights saw the value of establishing a Chamber. Over time the organization has morphed and activities have changed, but the mission to encourage a prosperous business community has remained. We are thankful for the volunteers and members who have supported the Chamber in the past, and excited with the leaders who now step up to continue the work. We announce the Chamber Board for 2014:
Betty Ridout: Chamber Board President, Bankers Trust
Steve Peterson: Vice President, Pioneer, City Council Member
Brook Wade: Treasurer, Bankers Trust
Dave Moench: 3E
Matt Cale: State Farm Agency
Flo Hunter: Retired teacher
Leng Vong Reiff: Akili Design, President-elect, Whypro chair
Jeff Fiegenschuh: City of Windsor Heights administrator
Sherry Borzo: Storied Gifts, business brainstorm organizer
Faith Dorn: Midwest Heritage Insurance Services
Britt German: Walnut Creek YMCA
Dr. Allison Carlson: Carlson Chiropractic
Michael Libbie: Insight Advertising, Marketing and Communications
Please join in welcoming the new board members and those who continue in service to our community.
And now for something hot. Just when you think you can’t take another bleak day of winter the Windsor Heights Chamber will be hosting its annual dinner event in the form of a Chili Cook-Off. Member businesses will be set up at stations throughout the Community and Events Center on the evening of March 27, to vie for your votes as the best chili-cooker in these parts.
If you’re a merchant who wants to compete, we dare you, we double dare you. If you’re a person looking for good eats and a chance to warm yourself by the fire, then head on down.
Look for more details to follow soon, but if you have a hankering to know more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
