The Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce purchased 39 East Granville Street, the chamber’s first permanent home since the organization formed in the mid-1970s. From left are Glenn Evans, Sunbury Mayor Tommy Hatfield, Myers Inn Museum Curator Polly Horn, Sunbury Village Administrator and former chamber president Dave Martin, and current chamber president Marc Hogenbirk. Evans and Horn were on the original steering committee tasked with deciding whether to form a civic association or a chamber of commerce. A decision was made to form the Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce, Sunbury was subsequently added to the name to give the chamber a physical location, and the rest, as they say, is history.
