On behalf of the outgoing Merrickville-Wolford Chamber of Commerce Board, I would like to congratulate the new Board on its victory. We leave our positions secure in the knowledge that the Chamber has never been in a better state, with a membership of over 80, a greatly expanded tourist reach, and a bank balance of over $18,000.
These funds were carefully accumulated over a three-year period with the goal of constructing new tourist-based streetscape attractions this spring. The new Board, of course, has every right to set its own agenda. We wish it well and will support it in a like manner.
