Chamber celebrates 77 years

The center will offer hospitality and Certified Nursing Assistance training this year.

“All these service are free thanks to the community for donating and shopping at Goodwill,” Lochore said.

On the business side of last week’s dinner, the Chamber also welcomed in new board members Zach Childs, Trish Petrie, Barbara Radcliff and Dwight Van Lierop.

The keynoted speaker was Kyle MacDonald who conquered some microphone issues to provide an overview of a project he undertook which started with one red paperclip, also the title of his book.

MacDonald posted the paper clip on a website for trade and through a series of trades – during which MacDonald jumped to a door knob, a generator, a snowmobile, a year’s free rent and a day with rocker Alice Cooper, among other items – MacDonald ultimately wound up with a house.

“If you have a dream, a plan and desire, you can do anything you want,” MacDonald said.
