January 2015 Newsletter
Happy New Year Chesaning!! New Year - new changes. My name is Bobbi Bates, part owner of Studio 124, and I will be your 2015 Chamber President. I have worked for 30 years in Chesaning. Beginning my career at ‘the O’Hare’ House in 1984, working for Pat O’Hare. In 1995 Pat decided he wanted to semi-retire, so his daughter and I acquired the O’Hare House and changed the name to Studio 124. I will forever be in debt to this man for giving me the opportunity to be a business owner in this wonderful little town we call Chesaning. As far as being Chamber President, I have some HUGE shoes to fill. Randy Stoddard has led this community for the past 4 years as Chamber President, going well above and beyond his duties. I know he is a great leader and inspiration to us all. I hope I have learned enough form him to do this job well. (Of course I do know his number). Thank you so much Randy for your faith and commitment to this community.
I would like to announce the new 2015 Chamber Board: Vice-President, Greg Bruff: Waddell and Reed, Treasurer, Steve Keck: H&R Block. Secretary, Jessica Woods: Sovis Insurance.

In closing the 2015 Chamber Board would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity and the privilege to serve you. If the Annual Dinner has any reflection on the rest of 2015, we are in for a good year. Attendance to the dinner was up by 30%. Thank you for coming out to support Chesaning. Many well deserved awards went out this year. Shannon Morse is Star employee of the year, from Sovis Insur-ance agency. Neil Pullman, Volunteer of the Year. Dr. Teal, Distinguished Busi-ness Person of theYear. There were over 24 longevity awards from 5 to 95 years in business in our town. That shows you the change that is happening in Chesaning and the ones that are in it for the long haul. We are Chesaning, we are memory makers and we are moving forward.
Have a great day!!
