My name is Mary and I have become an ambassador for the Richfield Chamber of Commerce. My decision to serve my city came after both of my parents passed. First I joined the Optimist’s Club and others, and then the Chamber. My need is to serve Richfield, the place where I grew up. The Richfield Chamber will be a place for me to grow. I was told in my years of school that because I am a special needs person, I wouldn’t be able to do much. From the time my illness was diagnosed at age three, I was not even meant to live. Now see me grow.
