The Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce said goodbye to their executive director.
Executive director Dione Chambers was the guest of honour at a farewell get together on Friday afternoon (July 14).
Chambers and her family are moving to Vernon, BC, where she will be taking on the role of executive director at the Vernon Chamber of Commerce starting on Monday morning (July 17).
Chambers is looking forward to living in Vernon as she has family there, but said this community has left quite an impression on her.
"I'm going to miss everything about Fort Saskatchewan," said Chambers. "Definitely the people, the businesses and the relationships we've made."
Chambers has been the executive director for three and a half of her five years with the local Chamber.
"We've got a lot of friends here and a lot of connection to the community, so we'll definitely be coming back to the community and coming to Chamber events to see everybody again," added Chambers.
Chambers wanted to express her gratitude to those who have been a part of her life here and to the hard working Chamber, board of directors and staff who have helped make the transition possible.
