Chamber Board Changes
Laurel Hash of Employees Credit Union served as a Chamber board member for several years and has decided to step down. She was an incredibly active member who supported the Chamber immensely and helped at every event, we will be very sad to see her go. The Chamber was incredibly lucky to have Laurel's help, advice and love of Estherville for so many years! Laurel will stay on the Sweet Corn Days Committee! Thank you Laurel!
Bruce Knutson of Pepsi will be taking Laurel's place on the Chamber board. He has already proven to be a big help after joining the Sweet Corn Days Committee last year. We look forward to working with him!
