Stephanie Mayfield has left her position as Executive Vice President at the Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce as of Friday.
To honor her service, the Chamber held a farewell open house Friday afternoon.
Mayfield is excited for her next adventure to stay at home with her 4-year-old daughter. She said her daughterâ€™s daycare closed and instead of trying to find a new one, she decided to stay home with her.
Mayfield has been with the Chamber for more than two years; she started in March of 2010.
â€śOpinions donâ€™t matter, theyâ€™re going to do what they want to do,â€ť said one landowner as he left a public hearing on the Thordenskjold Drain reassessment.
On Oct. 18, 1953, the cornerstone was laid at the St. Paulâ€™s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Valley City. Along with it, a time capsule was secured for a future congregation.
The Church opened the capsule following services on Sunday at St. Paulâ€™s new location.
â€śTo be able to open it,â€ť said the Rev. Mathew Sprunger, â€śit was really awesome.â€ť
Sprunger will celebrate three years with the church in August, and said that the former pastor of the church, Donald E. Kolander, handpicked many of the articles that were placed in the capsule.
