Darnell Place-Wise, interim executive director of the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce, has been officially named to the position.
Chamber board president Heather Redden said the position was advertised and two interviews were conducted prior to the permanent selection of Place-Wise. "She's already been building and repairing relationships, and we want to continue that process," Redden said. Plus, Place-Wise stepped in just a few weeks prior to Deltarado Days and successfully helped pull off the community celebration.
"I am honored and thrilled to have been chosen to be the face of the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce," said Place-Wise. "Living in Delta, and raising our daughter Emma, is a choice for my husband Travers and I; I feel blessed to be able to contribute to the success and growth of this amazing community that we call home!"
On Dec. 2, officers of the Delta Police Department responded to a report of an assault. Officers spoke with a 64-year-old male with a bleeding injury on his neck.
