The West Fargo Chamber of Commerce has a new logo, vision and mission to lead their 400-plus member strong organization, with the official unveiling ceremony taking place last Thursday at the group's 49th annual Awards Breakfast meeting held at the Best Western Doublewood Inn in Fargo. "West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce" is the new logo being touted, accented by a graphic of the winding Sheyenne River, also reminiscent of the letter 'w,' that will lead the Chamber staff into its new calendar year with a goal of securing an additional 75 members by annual meeting time next year.
