The Elwood Chamber welcomed four new members to its board of directors this year. One of the members is Alicia Macke (formerly Hoose), an employee of Red Gold, an Elwood native, and a new bride. As a former Elwood entrepreneur, Alicia brings a perspective to the Chamber board that is as fresh as it is experienced. As her two-year term gets under way, we are eager to learn more about her and her ideas. A recent Q&A interview with Alicia provides a preview.
Q: Please tell us a bit about yourself.
A: I was born and raised in Elwood but moved to Frankton approximately two years ago. I graduated from Elwood High School and Indiana Business College, now known as Harrison College. I have two children, Preston and Ashlyn Hoose. I recently expanded my family and added two more kids - Jake and Anna Macke - when Jerry and I married March 11.
