Hello from your new Executive Director!
Hi, Erin here. Just finishing up my second week as the new Executive Director of the Historic Downtown Chelan Association. Wow! Jessie has left me such a well-run ship, it’s been an easy transition.
For those of you I have not had an opportunity to meet yet, just a few words on why I am so excited about this new role. Our family moved to Chelan when my boys were 1 and 3 years old. We live 3 blocks from downtown and this amazing business community has been a cornerstone in our life. From our first days, we were regulars at The Vogue – hoping to meet other people and enjoy a good cup of coffee. As my children got older, we’d send them and their friends on scavenger hunts to various businesses while the moms hung out and talked about anything and everything. Fast forward to two teenagers – where our house has become home base for all their friends so they can easily walk to town and hang out. I could not be more excited or invested in a “job” than this new role.
After Winterfest weekends and a trip to the Winter Main Street conference in Olympia, I will be walking around to say “hi” to as many folks as I can!
