Reflections, Thanks, Farewell - Sammy Moore

With this being my final issue of Doorways and reflecting back to September, 1994, which was the first edition, it has been “a long run”.  It has been one that I have enjoyed, one that I have been proud to be a part of and one where I think we all have accomplished a lot.  In “reflecting” back, it has covered literally a third of my life.  My first 20 years were spent growing up in this wonderful community, the next 20 working for my family’s business (and I am equally proud of all we accomplished as a family sustaining an independent grocery store for almost 40 years, 1953-1992) and over the past 20 years (July 1, 1994) at this position.  My involvement with the Chamber goes back to 1989 as a member of the board so it is really a 25 year commitment.
