WWLCC Board Member Spotlight
Eric Linderman Deputy director of the Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library (WEPL) 

I am delighted to say how happy I am that the Library is a member of the Chamber and a partner in events including the annual ArtsFest.  As a member of the WWLCC board, I am especially proud of my new role as co-chair of the ArtsFest, which is always a successful event.  Supporting the arts is important, and I am glad to say that I am associated with two organizations that do very well with that effort.
