& Dr. Heng Lim and Ernie Davis
Collinsville Chamber of Commerce Officers were sworn in Saturday. L-R:
Jim Dolton (Vice- President), Traci Conley (President-Elect), and Ernie Davis
(President). Secretary-Treasurer Billie Francis was not present. Ernie Davis continues
as President in 2010 after stepping up to complete the 2009 term of Cory Slagle
who moved to Texas mid-term.
Landrum was voted by the Chamber members as the Member of the Year for her significant
contributions to the Chamber in 2009. The most notable efforts included her organization
of the Family Fun Day, Merchant
Giveaway, and Christmas Parade.
Davis in his Presidental acceptance speech indicated the Chamber should do more
to promote Collinsville and fundraisers would be necessary to make that happen.
He also requested input and feedback from the merchants and community.
Heng Lim used humor addressing the Chamber before moving into the serious message
of his struggles as a teenager in Communist ruled Cambodia before escaping to
the United States in 1981 at age 19. He arrived with no resources other than opportunity,
determination and faith. He reminds all Americans to remember the price of freedom
and be responsible citizens.
