I joined the Paynesville Chamber board of directors to be more directly involved in the community!! Who knew the chamber was involved with such great events!! T&C Days that includes the parade, the miss Paynesville pageant, kiddie parade, kids day and the Backdraft Bash music fest in conjunction with the Paynesville Fire Department in June!! Also the Arts & Craft day which now includes a car show in August, then in December Spirt of the Season with horse carriage rides and Santa Claus pictures. If you are interested in volunteering and becoming a board director please message me!!

Message From Current President Adam Leyendecker

I was approached to be on the Paynesville Chamber board back in February of 2016. I was eager to do so because this is the place I have lived all my life and I want to do my best to both preserve and create events that I have enjoyed as I grew up.

I would have never guessed how much I would learn about the town of Paynesville along the way. It has made me realize that the town of Paynesville has many awesome people who make this town what it is. It made me come to know that there are numerus groups and individuals who are pushing every day behind the scenes to improve the town we live in. The countless volunteers that take time away from their “normal” lives to allow people the opportunity to partake in fun events around town. To be quite honest it has been a real eye opener.

I would recommend to anyone willing to be a part of the Chamber board to do so. It has been a lot of fun working alongside individuals who all have the passion to help and improve Paynesville.
