By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – After 28 years with the Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry, MACCI program director, Debbie Bauer is retiring.
Bauer’s last day in the MACCI office was April 1, but she will continue to assist the organization in a limited capacity and complete her work with the current Crystal Apple program.
“I have had the pleasure of working for this amazing organization as program director and will forever be grateful for the connections I have made along the way. The friendships built, the opportunities I have been given, the business connections I have made, the financial and in-kind support that has been given, the good times shared, the memories made, and the different paths I have traveled down. I will forever cherish all those in my heart,” she said in a statement.
“I want to thank the business community for responding to my every ask and stepping up to support a program or event. It’s because of you and that support that so many programs offered throughout the years have been successful and continue to grow. “
Bauer was employed with the chamber as administrative staff, when she was hired by director, Marilyn Hardacre to replace Kim Baltus as program director in April 1995.
About her future, Bauer said, “(My husband) Dirk and I have so many things on our bucket list and look forward to doing more camping and fishing, spending more time with our son Jordan, and his wife Liz, and hopefully spoiling grandchildren some day.”
