Ashland Chamber’s Dana Welsh Retires after 18 years and a lifetime of service
Congratulations Dana Welsh and Thank You for your leadership, friendship and inspiration.
Dana Welsh retires after 18 years at the Ashland Chamber of Commerce doing everything graphics related. She joined the team after her term as President which followed mine. She and her family ran Artisan Press in Ashland prior to that. She has been a loving fixture in our community, chaired the Ashland Chamber 4th of July Parade and served as a true influencer for so many including myself for decades.
Thank you Dana. I know that Ashland is a better place to live and work and grow a business because of your tireless dedication and sweetness. One of my favorite memories out of thousands with you is the time that you and Sandra forgot your reading glasses on stage and had the audience laughing so much we were crying. But I also loved seeing you every 4th of July driving the golf cart as you checked on everything just before it started and that one time in Portland when we all had way too much fun…
May you enjoy a happy and long retirement filled with each of your grandchildren thinking they are your favorite.
