As the new executive director of the Summit County Chamber of Commerce, I wish to take this opportunity to salute the many individuals who have dedicated their time, energy and talents to the countywide business association over the past 23 years. Volunteers are the lifeblood of any organization. The dedication and commitment of past and present chamber members serving the many facets of the communities where they live, work and recreate is invaluable. On behalf of the chamber, we wish to thank the business and community volunteers who have donated time in recent weeks to the Visitor Information Center, which was relocated to Frisco’s Old Town Hall on Main Street.

The ongoing assistance from the town of Frisco, Summit County and Frisco Chamber members and the Summit Recycling Project has kept the door open for residents and visitors. As we work together toward a long-term solution, we appreciate having additional volunteers step forward to greet visitors to Summit County. To sign up please contact Donna Rushing at the Frisco Town Hall, (970) 668-5276 ext. 3020 during the week and Kathleen Kennedy at the Woods Inn, (970) 668-2255 on the weekend. The Summit County Visitor Information Centers’ third annual Golf Classic is scheduled for Thursday at Copper Creek Golf Course.

Individuals and teams may still sign up for a day of superb golfing and great fun. Lots of prizes will be awarded, including one for the last place team, which wins free lessons with Copper’s golf pro. To register, contact Lisa at KSMT radio at (970) 453-2234 or contact the chamber office for more information at (970) 668-2051.

We are grateful to the Summit Daily News for the opportunity to share information with the public in their publication on a regular basis.
