At the chamber we are confident and ready to tackle what the new year will bring! We are excited to announce that our chamber staff has grown to three, and now more than ever, we are equipped to assist you and your business. Ed Hoffman has transitioned into the role of Tourism and Communications Specialist, and he will continue to be an asset to this organization, especially in promoting events and tourism in and outside of Lake City. I am also thrilled to announce Heather Thomas has joined our team as our new Events and Office Coordinator. I am confident that her upbeat and hardworking attitude is the perfect fit for our office and community.

In her spare time she enjoys camping, traveling, spending time at the cabin and being outdoors and on the water with her family. Stop in and say hi to welcome Heather to our chamber team if you get a chance.
