Kayla Brown has volunteered to be the first ambassador for the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce. The new 2016 ambassador guidelines include visiting businesses to find out what the chamber can do to help, helping organize and participating in new business ribbon cuttings, and helping arrange Chamber After Hours events.
Kayla is a five-year employee of Bank of Colorado, and an advocate for shopping locally, even if prices are a bit higher, as long as customer service is friendly and helpful.
Asked why she wanted to be an ambassador, she said, "I like [chamber] vice president Phyllis Hoffman's vision of what the chamber can accomplish and feel I can be helpful."
The Hotchkiss-Crawford Historial Society will host its annual meeting on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 2:00 at the Memorial Hall in Hotchkiss.

He was formerly the editorial page editor for that paper for 19 years.
