Community says goodbye to retiring Chamber Director while embracing incoming Director
Williamsburg HomeTown Chamber members gathered at the Chamber June 25, to meet incoming Chamber Director Martha Burrows and say goodbye to retiring Director Leslee Spivey. Spivey has been working with Burrows for several weeks to acclimate the Kingstree native on the chamber’s responsibilities and close connection to the county.
Unbeknownst to Spivey, two surprises were in store for her during the Business After Hours Social. On behalf of Congressman James Clyburn, assistant Kenneth Barnes presented Spivey with a congratulatory letter and a certificate of special congressional recognition. The letter read in part, her service and contribution to the Chamber, as well as the Junior Leadership of Williamsburg Program, will be remembered and all will miss her.
Following Barnes, Kingstree Mayor Darren Tisdale and Kingstree Town Manager Richard Treme presented her with the Key to the City and a certificate honoring her hard work and dedication.
“If I had put it in one word to describe you - service,” said Tisdale. “You certainly have served the people of Kingstree well. And it’s been my pleasure and honor to know you as a friend.”
