Martha, who is owner of Eden Investments, and  a top seller at ReMax Western Heritage Realty has been a volunteer with the Edgewood Chamber for years, and her strong management skills will be appreciated.
Roger Alink of Wildlife West was the luncheon speaker this past Wednesday.
He filled us in on the many activities available at Wildlife West for the summer. We will be posting them in the Blast’s upcoming editions.  Thanks, Roger, for your time and the interesting presentation. 
We  welcomed our new Mayor Brad Hill to the meeting. He talked about some of the things he is already doing to support our business community. We are looking forward to the many projects we can get involved with to help bring new businesses to the area, and help to “grow” our existing businesses!
++++++++++++++++++++++Edgewood Maps
It’s time to order new maps for Edgewood. These maps enjoy wide distribution!  We have gone through almost all of the maps printed in the last run in 2008.  There are advertising opportunities for all of you who want to be included in Edgewood’s only complete street map. 
 Ad sales have now begun, and will run through the end of May.  Some of the premiere positions are already gone, but there are still great positions for your business.
