Richfield Chamber Presidency

Up For Challenge Next Week

RICHFIELD SPRINGS – It looks like a rare contest is shaping up for president of a local chamber of commerce, in Richfield Springs.

When the notice went out in recent days for the chamber’s annual meeting, planned at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 15, at the Lake House Restaurant on Canadarago Lake, it listed  Christine Corrigan, Lake House proprietor with her husband, Gene, as proposed president.

Today, though, Karen Collins of Hidden Gems & Treasures circulated an e-mail stating her interest and saying, “If I am elected, I will be very active in the community and available when needed.”  The wife of Chester “Skip” Collins, she has been in the village seven years and was recently active in the Winter Wonderlands committee.

Other officers on the official slate are Joann Christman, vice president, and board members Carole Bayzon, Randy Christian, Paul Palumbo, Onalee Sanford, Judie Stone and Daniel Sullivan, as well as Karen Collins.  The vote will occur at the annual meeting.
