New head at CRR Chamber
Crooked River Ranch Chamber Board president John Bowler announced Feb. 16, he would be resigning from the board.
"Kathleen and I have wanted to reduce our business activities for some time and take life more leisurely than the duties of chamber president permit," he said.
As the CRR Chamber is on the brink of expanding its marketing area to all of the 97760 ZIP code, requiring more effort on the part of the board, Bowler said he felt it was time for a change.
"The board accepted my request, and I completed turning over the reins of president to chairman Ben Mallery last Friday (March 2). He knows I am available to answer questions that arise during this transition period," Bowler said.
Bowler noted he has enjoyed two separate terms of administering the CRR Chamber, had a good deal of fun, met some great people and made some real progress during those years.
