To the MEDC Board of Directors
On August 20th, at a rescheduled MEDC Board meeting, The Board accepted a resignation from Kristen Sanders, who served as the MEDC's Vice President for the last year. Kristen had recently left her position at Castle Bank, to serve a long time passion working for a non for profit in family counseling services. Kristen reassured us all she would still " be around" as she lives in Oswego with her family. We sincerely wish Kristen all the best and appreciate all she has done for us!
The Board welcomed Craig McQuade to the MEDC Board.
Craig was recently promoted to Commercial Lender at the Oswego location. Craig will be a perfect addition to the MEDC Board as he works closely with area businesses. Craig was recently married and purchased a new home in Montgomery.
As a personal resident of Montgomery and a commercial banker for Castle Bank, " I look forward to working with the MEDC to promote the growth and development of Montgomery.
Please help us with a warm Welcome to our community!

A Parents Prayer:
As a parent, most of us would find any illness imposed on our child as devastating. No matter what the diagnosis, most parents would prefer to take any pain or any illness
that their child may have, in place of them. Recently, I was informed of a mother's story and her daughter that touched my heart. Rachel, was recently diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Carrie Herr and her family have been Montgomery residents for many years. Carrie walked into my office several years ago, as a salesperson for one of the local hotels. She never hesitated to jump on several committees and in several organizations. She was always willing to lend a hand. Her warmth and kindness emulates any room she walks into. Her daughter is a lot like her and has brought a new meaning to the word HOPE. Please join me in participating in Rachel's Hope. Click below for information on the event and a contact if you would like to learn more about this remarkable family.
