The Washington Chamber of Commerce is hoping that residents will want to be the face and voice of the city to incoming new residents. Chamber Executive Director Michelle Peiffer says the idea is to train volunteers to spend a little time every month at the chamber office to greet people that come in the door and to answer questions.  Peiffer says that they are not necessarily looking for experts, but people that have a love and passion for the community. An informational meeting for possible volunteers is at the Washington Public Library on Friday at 3 p.m.
