“I am thrilled to be joining CMC and becoming involved in the community,” she said. “I am passionate about community media and one of the greatest things about what we do is allowing people to tell their stories.  Each person, each non-profit, and every community has a story and I want to help facilitate their ability to share it with others.“

Chatel can be reached at 508-394-2388, ext. 102.
