The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce membership celebrated and recognized some fabulous community members at the annual meeting and awards dinner. Chamber members welcomed new Chamber Board Chair, Becky Simpson and said thank you to our outgoing Board Chair Rodrigo Lagunas for his many years of commitment and service to the chamber. We had the opportunity of welcoming newly elected Board members: Anna Bergum, Willamette Valley Real Estate Team; Shannon Botten, Botten’s Equipment and Event Rental; and Rick King, Evergreen Home Loans to the Board of Directors and said a thank you to outgoing Board member Russel Mark of Juliette’s House.
