Friends:  My work at our Chamber has definitely been a highlight in my life and it’s because of you; the people and the businesses in this community.  We are blessed with an awesome town and organizations that work well together, wanting the best for the people here.  I am glad I got to be a part of it.  Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for twelve positive years with the Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce.  I truly enjoyed helping and working with the people here, and whether you realize it or not, I learned something valuable from each of you.  I look forward to my new start with hopefully more happy adventures.  But please know that Murray will always be my home and you will always be my favorite.  ~ Lisa
