Crosby-Huffman election begins prosperous changes

By Lewis Spearman

CROSBY – The Crosby-Huffman Chamber of Commerce is on the march, beginning processes of purchase of a new office building, quadrupaling monthly membership increases, launching new community clean-up and spirit committees and held elections last Thursday for board members.

Newly elected are Judy Sirocka of Crosby Office Supplies and Bob Ward of Bob’s Computers. Chosen for a vacated post is Terri Aubain of Alliance Properties actually #8 in votes but Dan Meaux #7 decided that the post requires lots of business time when he needs it to operate a restaurant. Re-elected are Venita Smith of KMCO, Kim Harris of United Community Resouce Credit Union, Velma Ellison of Alliance Properties and the Rev. Dr. Larry Koslovsky of Crosby Brethren Church.

The Board officially announced their decision to purchase 5312 First Street at the Oct. 20 luncheon inside the American Legion David H. McNerney Post 658 dining hall.

The staff of President Glenda Logsdon and Dayna Rankin are cooperating to increase the membership to about 19-20 new members each month against about 3 per month previously. Meanwhile new office equipment and technical capabilities have been added by the board to facilitate the growth.

The rapid decision to act on the availability of the property was played out in a series of specially called board meetings with more to come to decide on furnishings and future needs.

New committees have been formed and are generally guided by Danya Rankin as Glenda Logsdon not only acts as representative to prospective members but also addresses community needs. A new Pride and Spirit Committee has been lauched for a cleaner view and youth aware community.
