The new chamber’s phone system will allow for combined services. Gillette listed “avoiding duplication of services” as a new goal. She did not speak to the continuation of existing chamber offices, but prior published accounts have stated that all offices will remain.

In other business, the commissioners proclaimed the week of April 6 to 12 as National Volunteers Week; endorsed a $60,000 PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant application for the D&H Canal Park at the old Lock 31, located on U.S. Route 6 between Hawley and White Mills; and approved a posthumous certificate of recognition for the family of former Wayne County Historian, Richard Eldred, who died in March.
