Prescott Chamber of Commerce
held its annual membership meeting Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the
Performance Hall. Economist Elliott Pollack of Elliott D. Pollack & Co. gave a keynote address for the second year in a row. Details of his talk were reported in Thursday's Courier, and a copy of his PowerPoint presentation is available at www.edpco.com.
Other activities at the annual meeting included comments from the chamber's 2013 Chairman of the Board, Matt Holdsworth (Holdsworth & Co.), and the 2014 Chairman Ed Walsh (Lamb Chevrolet Cadillac and Lamb Nissan). Holdsworth noted the chamber's positive year with some growth in membership, perhaps a sign that the economy is finally improving.
Plaques were presented to three retiring members of the board, Ken Lain (Watters Garden Center), Rob Pecharich (Boyle, Pecharich, Cline, Whittington & Stallings), and Lenora Nelson (Bennett Oil Co.)
Chamber staff member Jacquie Tobin received special recognition for her 30th anniversary on the chamber staff. She received a plaque, and many of the chamber volunteers signed a card and gave Jacquie a corsage created by Allan's Flowers, and a bouquet of dried flowers all the way from Artistic Flowers of Cashel in Ireland.
Three community members were singled out for special recognition. Past chairman Don Schiller was honored for serving as "Santa" in the Chamber's Christmas Parade for 20 years. Also honored but not able to attend the meeting was Beverly Williams, who retired this year after serving on the Parade Committee - most years as chair of the committee - for 21 years.
Tommy Meredith (Jersey Lilly Saloon) was recognized for creating the "Friends of Jersey Lilly" in 2008 to raise money annually for the Courthouse Lighting program. The "Friends" efforts have grown over the years and now bring in more than $15,000 annually.
