“BAYHAM CITIZEN OF YEAR IS DOUG LESTER”

Vienna – Doug Lester,  President of Otter Valley Chamber of Commerce, was named Bayham’s 2009 Citizen of the Year at a Community Volunteer Recognition night Thursday at Vienna Community Centre. Mr. Lester, a native of Tillsonburg who moved to Bayham a few years ago, provided this information to AylmerNews about his business and his Chamber activities:

“Our business is Eagle Tree Perspectives. We help leaders and not for profit organizations build personal and collective capacity and effectiveness through increased awareness and skill in interpersonal and group dynamics. We have been in operation since 1998. We are located in Port Burwell.

The Otter Valley Chamber began in April 2008 and has grown from 30 members to 70. I became President in January 2009. During my term we have expanded our membership and hosted the first ever Bayham-Elgin Business Expo with 34 exhibitors. Outside the Chamber I was a part of the Harbour Committee that raised funds and succeeded in getting the first dredging done in ten years.”
