At a recent Membership Luncheon, Diane Bade and Michele VanTuyl with UniQue Ideas ‘N More presented the Fenton Area Chamber of Commerce with a brand new pair of Ribbon Cutting scissors on behalf of Diane, her late husband Harold, and the entire VanTuyl family. Diane mentioned that Harold was truly an advocate of business and the Chamber, thus it is only fitting that these scissors carry his name with them through the dedication placed on the scissors: “Harold Bade Longtime Chamber Member & Friend.”
The Fenton Area Chamber of Commerce is grateful for this gift and will cherish them, along with the memory of Harold Bade who passed away earlier this year. Thank you, Diane, Michele, and family.
