Congratulations to Bob Somerville, Photos by Bob and Val Somerville for being recognized for his outstanding efforts this past year in promoting the Monticello Chamber and our events. Bob Somerville was instrumental in rebuilding our Art in the Park vendors. We have so many new vendors because of his efforts. He attended numerous ribbon cuttings and offered his photography skills at many of our events. Thank you for helping lighten the load in the office.
The Ambassador Committee members are the visible, good-will arm that welcomes new businesses to the Monticello area and helps with the retention of current membership. They serve as a welcoming committee at special functions such as business anniversaries, Grand Openings, Open Houses and host Ribbon Cutting ceremonies for new members.
Ambassadors meet the 4th Tuesday of each month 12-1pm at rotating Chamber Restaurants.
