Moore elected De Soto
David Moore, Baldwin City, doesn't have any grand plans as the next president of the De Soto Chamber of Commerce because he figures keeping up the tradition of recent presidents is grand enough.
"I will carry over the chamber's momentum and continue to add members," he said.
The chamber added 35 members last year and now has 172 members.
Moore, vice president of commercial and real estate lending with De Soto TeamBank, was elected president of the chamber at the organization's November meeting.
Moore said he wanted to build on the success of last month's chamber blues and barbecue that raised $5,000. He would like to see it become an all-day event next year, he said, with more bands and an inflatable children's playground.
