Last updated 2/11/2021 at 9:09am

ODESSA – The Odessa Chamber of Commerce via Zoom met Feb. 9 to elect officers for the year and handle other relevant matters. Nominations were opened for all positions, although none were forthcoming. The slate of nominees from the prior Chamber meeting was then approved via a vote of acclimation by the participating members. The new officers are: President Jeff Huiras, Vice President Norm Ott, Secretary Terrie Schmidt-Crosby, Treasurer Larissa Zeiler, at-large board member Michelle Melgren, at-large board member Matt Rosman and Biergarten chairman Kory Kolterman.

Outgoing President Zach Schafer announced that an anonymous donor had provided a brand new (still in the box) food warmer for use in the commercial kitchen in the community center.

Laura Estes requested advice on what to do with items left in the community center main cooler since Fest of 2019 (mainly beverages). Schafer advised that he would deal with any beer or equipment belonging to Rocky Coulee Brewing and that the remaining items should be disposed of, since they were likely expired by this time. Estes also reported that there had been a couple of rentals of the kitchen recently, which was an indication of things beginning to happen once again.

New President Jeff Huiras welcomed new member Matt Roberson to the board and indicated his hopes for increased recruitment of members and moving ahead with planning for future activities and events.
