During the April 2017 Ferndale Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon, ballots were left on each table with three nominees for Member of the Month. After the votes were tallied, WhatcomTalk was announced as the winners.

“It was such a pleasant surprise,” said Stacee Sledge, WhatcomTalk Community Manager. “We were up against two fantastic, long-standing Ferndale businesses.”

The WhatcomTalk team was honored by the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce as the Member of the Month.

The following week, the WhatcomTalk team headed to beautiful Hovander Homestead Park to receive a plaque from Ferndale Chamber Executive Director Ann Cline, Chambers employees and ambassadors.

“The Ferndale Chamber is made up of so many inspiring individuals and businesses. We’re proud to be recognized by our fellow Ferndale Chamber members for this honor,” said Sledge.

“There are so many great people and businesses in our community and the fact that we were recognized shows we are really making a big difference to all those around us,” said Kevin Coleman, Community Relations and Business Development Manager. “When we truly put out the right intent the right things do happen and people feel that and want to be part of it.”

WhatcomTalk will now be one of the nominees for Business of the Year, awarded by the Ferndale Chamber.

“We get to be a part of a community where we are the driving force of positivity and good intent,” said Coleman. “I am proud to be a part of something so amazing and a recognition like this pushes us to be even better than before.”
