Plans are set for the Windom Area Chamber of Commerce to oversee Riverfest 2022.
“Last year’s Riverfest chairman, Clark Lingbeek, spoke with me in December and said it was a struggle getting new members on the committee,” recalled Tyann Marcy, executive director of the Windom Area Chamber of Commerce. “He asked if we would ever want to bring it back to the Chamber.”
In early-February, the previous board voted to turn Riverfest over to the Chamber.
“This was a very difficult decision for our board to make, but we felt that it was in the best interest of Riverfest to find a new way to continue to hold this the wonderful community event we have come to know and love over the years,” said Maria Thom, who served on the previous board. “Our board, like many volunteer organizations in this day and age was becoming smaller and smaller and the amount of responsibility was growing which put a stress on our small board.”
