2020 has brought some changes to the ESVCC. After five years of extensive research and hard work which resulted in important restructuring and improving the chamber, Mike Wellbourne is taking a well-deserved retirement as president. I have stepped in to fill his shoes and continue to improve and update our position as an organization that supports local businesses and our community as well as promoting tourism with fun events for residents and visitors alike.
For those who don’t know me, I’m a 20-year resident of Sierra Brooks and a firefighter and EMT with the Loyalton volunteer Fire Department. I’m retired from charter school teaching and being a Tahoe Forest Hospital Surgery Department Sterile Processing Technician and Instrument Specialist. I like to think that the requirements of good planning, attention to detail, working on a tight schedule, communication and supervision in both of these professions will serve me well as president. I have a board and active members who are willing to help me in our chamber goals. This year’s new active members are Genelle Wagnitz, Kayte Puckett, Sharon Dryden, Karen Rickman, Bill Bryan and Joani Taylor-fillman, who has taken my former position as secretary.
You can help give back to Loyalton by joining East Sierra Valley Chamber of Commerce and becoming an active member. Your ideas and assistance are valuable! Join us at our meeting held the first Saturday of each month and find our what activities are being planned. Get involved and help support your hometown!
