Chamber gets ReStore update

New name on the way of Ada's Main Street non-profit

Robert Kanzig, ReStore Community Center executive director, updated Ada Area Chamber of Commerce members on the Main Street non-profit organization during the May 15 chamber breakfast at the Ada Public Library.

“The ReStore name has served us well,” said Kanzig, “It, for better or worse, has also served Habitat for Humanity well for longer.”
