continued “If Westporters continue to step up to the plate and be involved and do some of these things that will be talked about Nov. 19, then I think we can move forward,” she said. “I see it as a wave, a big leap forward and it will take a lot of work and a lot of people taking part in that work.”
Carroll said the chamber has worked throughout the past year on repairing the Heritage House roof, working to build relationships between businesses in neighboring towns and creating themed itineraries for use by Lakes to Locks Passages.
In the future, a lot of the focus for the chamber is on the upcoming Bicentennial program and the creation of a beautification committee.
“We want to find ways to make Westport even more attractive to visitors, potential residents and visitors,” Carroll said. “We can start doing it now and getting people involved. We want to continue to encourage and praise those people who step forward to help.”
