Retirement party planned for the County Chamber’s director


CANTON – Reservations are now being accepted for St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Pat McKeown’s retirement party, set for May 22 in at the River Road Restaurant at the Massena Country Club on Route 131.

The cost is $30 per person, and includes a contribution toward a gift. The event starts at 4:30 p.m. with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a buffet dinner at 5:30 p.m. Veteran radio personality Sandy Cook will be emcee for the evening.

RSVP by May 16 by calling the Chamber at 315-386-4000 or emailing .

Ms. McKeown began as interim executive director at the Chamber in 2007, and shortly thereafter was named permanent director. The new ventures she spearheaded include the region’s first broadband initiative, as well as FISHCAP, the award-winning program promoting the St. Lawrence River Valley as a sport-fishing destination.

Prior to her work at the Chamber, McKeown was editor of The Massena Observer. She later initiated the news department at North Country Public Radio, served as former Governor Mario Cuomo’s regional representative, and assumed several leadership roles at St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES.

McKeown’s successor, Brooke E. Rouse, begins at the Chamber in June.
