Directors of the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce held their first board meeting of the year on Jan. 3.

Newly elected to serve on the board were Nancy Snowdon, psychologist, to serve a one-year term; Nick Streza of Deer Creek Village Realty to serve a two-year term; Mitchell Gronenthal of Reve Portraits and Arc of Western Central Colorado to serve a three-year term; and, Bruce Hovde, former Delta County commissioner, to serve a three-year term.

Returned to positions on the board were Dottie Whitlock and Nancy Hovde to three-year terms.

The elected members joined continuing board members David Starr, Cindy Starr, Frank St. Peter and Phyllis Hoffman.

Officers for the coming year were also ratified. They are Nancy Hovde, president; Phyllis Hoffman, vice president; Frank St. Peter, secretary; and, Mitchell Gronenthal, treasurer.

Kayla Brown of Bank of Colorado/Cedaredge was appointed to serve as chair of the chamber's Ambassador Program.

Some business matters were taken up by the board at its first meeting. Discussions included a presentation by Welcome Western Colorado, a business described as "an updated version of the Welcome Wagon." There was also a report from Town Administrator Katie Sickles on delays in the Jay Avenue Bridge replacement project due to need for relocating a six-inch-diameter water line. The original end-of-2016 completion date has been moved out now to April 1.

Sickles asked that a representative be designated to give a chamber report at the monthly town trustee meetings. There has been no one to report on the chamber's activities at several recent meetings, and Sickles said the mayor wants to know whether to keep the chamber report item on his monthly agenda.

A call was issued for volunteers to help with the Feb. 4 Island Lake fishing contest.
