Edgewood Chamber Friday Blast (3/1/13)

A Note from Madeline:

Some people are always looking for things to do.  I am adding the duties of sales for The Independent newspaper to my list of activities.  This is being done with the full support of the board of directors.  Nothing will change.  All activities will continue.  However, I will probably not be responding to anyone’s request for Words with Friends or visiting much on Facebook in the future, but the Chamber and its members are very important and will continue to be a critical part of every day.

Experience in the past included owning my own Advertising Agency in Montana and here, so the job with the Independent will give me a chance to help businesses to be more successful
I am ALWAYS available at


advertising sales
