FULTON — Morrow County Chamber of Commerce President LeAnne Gompf welcomed new president Erin Kelty at the December meeting.

Chamber members gave both Gompf and Kelty enthusiastic applause at the noon luncheon held at Lutheran Memorial Camp.

Kelty, who is US Bank branch manager in Marengo, said, “I’m very excited to be returning as president of the Chamber. There have been so many challenges these last couple of years; and I am so proud to be part of a growing business community in spite of these challenges.”

Kelty added, “I can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring for our Morrow County businesses. We are all growing together.”

Gompf thanked Chamber Executive Director Angela Powell for her hard work, energy and enthusiasm.

Powell assumed the Director’s position in September and has continued the Chamber’s traditional programs and events as well as adding some new ideas to the mix.
