Chamber elects new board

by Donna Claar

The Union City Chamber of Commerce held their annual meeting via Zoom this month and a new board has been elected. Serving for the 2020/2021 term is: Chair Sandy Silsby of DOVE Ag Services, Inc; First Vice Chair Brendan McCarthy of Edward Jones; Second Vice Chair William Coats of Berkshire Hathaway; Past Chair Val Rossman of Pottery Rocks!; Secretary Paula DeJongh of All Things Serenity; Treasurer Kandice McRae of Southern Michigan Bank & Trust.

August begins our fiscal year so it is the perfect time to join the chamber! Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 A.M., April though December. Zoom provides an easy way to listen in and participate with this dynamic group right from the comfort of your own home or business. The membership likes it enough that we thought we’d still offer the option even after we can resume meeting in person again!

If you would like to have a voice in our efforts to maintain the greater Union City area as a great place to live and work, please contact me at or call/text (269) 317-7723. At only $120 per year for a membership, it is a great way to network and market what your business has to offer. That’s only $10 a month! A chamber application is also available at our web site at

The next chamber meeting, to be held via Zoom, is Tuesday, August 11 at 7:30 A.M. Won’t you join us?
