A familiar face is coming back to the local area, as the Kelso-Longview Chamber of Commerce announces the hiring of Karen Sisson as its new Project Manager. Sisson worked for the Chamber as a new member recruiter back in 1997 before leaving to start her own business as an event planner. She also helped to plan and produce the Rain Fest events in 1999 and 2000. Sisson succeeds Brooke Fisher, who recently left the Chamber to pursue other interests. You can meet Sisson and also get a sneak peek at the Stageworks Northwest production of “9 to 5” at tonight’s Chamber After Hours event, which is being held from 5:30 to 7:30 this evening in the Longview Theatre, located at 1433 Commerce Avenue in downtown Longview. Call the Chamber at 423-8400 for reservation information, or go to the Chamber website.
