‘It’s been five years since we’ve met and 10 years since we’ve been active,? said Amy Grimes, Bank One-Goodrich branch manager. ‘There has been some new growth in the area and it’s time we got going on a chamber.?
Grimes along with Patty Plant of Cranberries Cafe and others began promoting the chamber earlier this year with the hopes of organizing a core group of Goodrich and Atlas Township businesses.
