Community Collaboration brings people together

We all prosper from a good downtown,” stated Natalie Muruato last Tuesday night as she spoke to a crowd of approximately 100 people gathered at the Chamberlain Community Center for a open forum to discuss the community’s economic future. Muruato, who started as the new Lake Francis Case/ Chamber Executive Director January 7, welcomed the unexpected large crowd of people and thanked them for attending. “We appreciate the huge crowd,” said Muruato as people with concerns over the future of the Chamberlain business community continued to pour into the meeting room.

“I’m way overwhelmed by the number of people here.” “I got hired to run two organizations, that yes, should work together, but they are separate entities,” said Muruato.

Chamber activities involve more hands on assistance working with current businesses to help them grow their businesses or develop succession plans.
