St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce names two new board members
MADAWASKA, Maine — The St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce welcomed two new members to the Board of Directors after two members left for “personal reasons.”
The St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Sept. 4 that the two vacancies created by the departure of board members Andrew Dube and April Hodgson had been filled.
Jane Carter Corbin of Mom’s Fudge is set to take over for Dube with a term ending in 2022.
Theresa Theriault with Shop ‘n Save will take over for Hodgson for a term ending in 2021.
“I have been on the Acadian Festival for 11 years and I play a part in the success of these festivities,” Theriault said. “I know I can bring the same level of enthusiasm to the Chamber of Commerce.”
Corbin said Chamber Director Sharon Boucher had been wanting her to join the board for a while, but after Theriault was secured as a member, Corbin joined in as well.
“In convincing Theresa to get on board to be treasurer, I said I was going to get on if she was getting on,” Corbin said. “I’ve been wanting to do so for a while so I saw the opportunity.”
Corbin said she hopes to bring ideas to the board to help the businesses grow.
“There is a lot more room to grow for our community,” Corbin said. “Like anything else, when you work together, you get things done.”
