Sarah: We had lived in Gilbert/Chandler for about the past 18 years and decided to make a change because we were tired of the heat and wanted a change of scenery.

PWM: What about the Prescott Chamber is different from other organizations in the area, and what do you personally enjoy best about being part of it?

Sarah: No.

PWM: Do you have family here? Children? Other activities in which you participate?
