Hillsboro chamber moves to Main St.

Staff writer

Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce is currently transplanting its office from 111 W. Grand St. about a half a block west and a half a block north to its new location at 120 N. Main St.

“We had an opportunity to move to a newer, recently remodeled building, so we took it,” chamber president Cynthia Fleming said. “It’s a really nice office space. I think it will be a good home for the chamber.”

The chamber will rent the space from the McPherson-based law firm, Wise and Reber, and share the building with the Citizen’s State Bank.

The move began last Saturday, during which nine people showed up to transport much of the office’s contents, except for the main furniture and equipment the chamber uses on a daily basis.

Lena Hall, chamber office manager, said the new location should afford the chamber of commerce more visibility to out-of-towners.

For her, the move conjured up mixed emotions.

“It’s a little sad and nostalgic to be leaving the old building — I was hired here, there are a lot of good memories, but I am looking forward to making new ones at our new building,” Hall said.

The move should be complete this Saturday and the chamber is expected to open for business Monday Dec. 22.
