Diley Ridge Medical Center  



February 2017
View from my desk,

WOW how time flies!  Our January board meeting concluded this week and we welcomed some new faces. Denise Mathias has joined the board as the vice-chair taking the spot previously occupied by Connie Spruill. Denise comes to us from Edward Jones and we are thrilled to have her sharp business sense as well as her sharp wit.  
Mike Miller joins us this year and he represents The Salvation Army.  Mike is instrumental in putting together the golf outing so any questions should go to him on this. The golf outing is planned for July 14, 2017 at Westchester Golf Club.  It is going to be a very nice event catered by Westchester and planned by a very committed group of individuals.  Put it on your calendar today!  I will be sending out information on sponsorship opportunities as soon as they are completed.  
Carolyn Sittler joins us as our new treasurer.  We are very happy to be working with Carolyn as she is a retired accountant and is part of the Chamber and the Canal Winchester Art Guild.  
Aimee Milligan has joined our board and comes from Diley Ridge Medical Center where she is the COO.  Aimee brings with her a keen sense of leadership and attention to financial detail. 
Tia Beal owns her own nail business.  Tia brings excitement and energy to the board, welcome Tia.  
Liz Bainter comes to us as a board member from South Central Power.  Long time luncheon attendee and friend of the Chamber of Commerce through her outreach with South Central Power.  

Last week I mailed out my first batch of Window Clings for those who have paid membership dues since September 2016 through last week.  Put these 5 inch stickers on your door to display that you are proud to be a contributing member to the Canal Winchester Area Chamber of Commerce.  As your membership dues come due, upon payment you will receive  the most current window cling.
