    "We are formed; we exist"

    William Cunningham, acting president, was talking about the embryonic but energetic Chamber of Commerce of Queen Anne's County.

    Serving with Cunningham, an official of the Maryland National Bank, in acting capacities are Dr. James C. Foor, a Chester veterinarian as Vice President; Lee Willis, a builder and developer as Secretary, and Thomas Roe, a certified public accountant as Treasurer.

    Cunningham's announcement was made following the third meeting of the Board of Directors at the Fishermans' Inn, Thursday night.

    Serving on the Board are Pat Thompson, County Attorney; James Dudley, a Queenstown farmer; Dr. Robert Schleiger, President of Chesapeake College; Oscar Schulz, Restauranteur, and Julius Grollman a Businessman.

    Cunningham said, "The main emphasis is going to be given in the early stages to membership development."

    In line with the objective, prospective members were invited to write to P.O. Box 303 Stevensville, 21666, or to call 643-3801. Dues will be $25.00 annually.

    A related objective Cunningham said, will be "to take unified action on issues that affect the area."

    The officer and board members will meet again at the Fisherman's Inn, Thursday, June 5, at 8:00p.m. when one agenda item is expected to be approval of bylaws.
