Member Testimonial

Larry Logeman, Executive Express

"In August 2018 I attended the Waite Park Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new ampitheather. I want to thank Senator Jerry Relph and Representative Tama Theis for working so hard on our behalf to make this happen. Both are also regular attendees of various Chamber functions. I am grateful to the Chamber for these events when I can speak to our elected officials so easily and often. Thanks Chamber!"
