Letter: Business community in Oak Harbor is better off thanks to Cribb


I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to Christine Cribb for all of her work with the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce. Since she first began as the director, she gave her all to take the chamber and our community to the next level in a professional and dignified manner. There is a reason that the she has so many offers.

Our business community is better because of all of her efforts over the past five years. In my nearly 30 years of being in Oak Harbor, I have never worked with a chamber director who does so much and works so hard to elevate the city. You leave us with big shoes to fill and high expectations for your predecessor.

It has been a pleasure working with you, and we wish you well in your future endeavors.
