I just heard some shocking things about Lois Farnsworth and Larry Stevens(dickey house). Anyone else heard anything? Maybe something about the fair? Don't think I'll be supporting the chamber of commerce anymore.

Let's get down to the grit here. What in the world are you hoping to do here? No shame in quitting but there is shame in sending emails all over town that are only half truths and in some cases plainly incorrect. Your credibility has been trashed and you single handily done this to yourself. Have enough sense to stop. Think of your wife and friends.

Hey whasup, if you have any questions please feel free to call me. Larry and I have no secrets, we work hard for the chamber if you feel we could improve Im sure we can make room for you to come and help us. By the way this is my REAL name. And if you cant support us anymore, I guess we are better off. Thank goodness there are alot more community minded people who will. And thank you to the person who called to tell us to look at this forum.

Until the Marshfield Chamber of Commerce can conduct activites in a professional manner they will no longer recieve support from myself and many other business onwers. You should not have to worry about getting yelled at or offensive comments being said at you while volunteering your time. Has anyone asked why so many board members have resigned and the new executive secretary resigned? I think a few of the current board members might need to go before things turn around.

Business Owner the only thing that really needs to be said here "Do you listen to gossip?, or do you seek to find out the truth?. We have not had board members resign (only a family member) we have a group that works hard and we all have to put up with alot from naysayers who dont want to help. Every organization in this town gets their share of it. Now Im sure you have gotten the story you want and need to hear. So be it, there is so much to say, but that keeps garbage going. So I will say to you if you want to know what we do, and how hard we do it----join us. And as far as getting yelled at with offensive comments, yes I could have been very upset when it happened to me and I appreciate the fact that you understand and support me. But if you have questions and really want answers dont hide behind "Marshfield Business Owner", stand up ask questions and listen.

What is wrong with the chamber? You say someone works hard, but at what? Rodeo? What does that do for us during 12 months? Lots of board changes, it was in the paper. Something is very wrong with the chamber, not hearing anything good.
I agree with the Marshfield Business Owner, not a professional group. Crude language and arrogant behavior, lacking what it takes to represent the area.

In reference to "Marshfield Business Owner" comments, I totally agree with you. I thought the Chamber board would be made up of business professionals. Obviously not as Lois has no education nor a business to speak of. What she is really good at though is a vocabulary filled with the "F" bomb and vulgar language. This behavior is inappropriate and unprofessional. Not who I want to represent my business. When are the Chamber board/members going to wake up? I for one will no longer support the Chamber. There are other venues in Marshfield that truly want to see our town and businesses succeed,unlike the Chamber President and Board members who are either to intimidated or just to ignorant to put a stop to bad behavior.Get rid of Lois and get down to what is really important, the business of helping business in Marshfield.

Business owners: I have lots of business experience and bring all that I know and have learned to the Chamber. So do many of the board members. Just because a board member does not have a lot of experience does not mean that they have nothing to contribute. I don't see any of you volunteering your time to join the Chamber and CHANGE it to your liking. I also do not see any your names or company names...guess you are not as committed as you think and are embarrassed by your writings. I say put up or shut up! Come join us and make the changes you so strongly desire. You are lucky that I am not Lois as I would certainly take legal action against all the slander on this site. Remember, anything you do on the internet can be traced back to you. Please stop all this nonsense and come join us if you care so much.

What has been said that is not true? I know that I do not care to have a face to face with a bully and from what I've heard is the behavior of Lois. Who wants to put up with that in a place of business?

Replace those that need to go. Choose people that are respected, know how to use language that is appropriate and that are professional.

Fix It are you just stupid? Bully she would kick your ass, but that isnt what she does!! She works hard, puts up with shit and deals with people like Terry!! There hasnt been a comment since 8-18-11, what do you want to bet there will be a comment now so Terry do you really think everyone in Marshfield is stupid?, you quit shut up and go away, like you have every other job you have had. Quit trashing the person who has stayed with the chamber and tries to make a difference. Her ways may sometime come under question, but has she always stayed, does she work her tail off? People stand up and put an end to this bs, She is not always right, but Terry quit and gave up. That is not what this community needs. All these post probably come from 1 person, at least when Lois and Larry had something to say they used there name, the same cant be said for the "CRY BABY"

First of all this is not "Terry" so the "another Opinion" don't assume it is. Also, I don't see your name on here either. Don't call someone basically a coward and turn around and do the same. I am not listing my name because I am a business owner and do not want my words turned into unsaid rumors like most of the stuff on here does. I am also a business owner who will not join our Chamber. I have seen our new "Chamber Director" doing nails on numerous occasions during the hours she was to be at the chamber. And also don't try to tell me it was on her lunch break. If that is the case, she takes 3 to 4 hour lunches. She is hardly ever there. As I understand it several good candidates did try to get this position but were not even considered or interviewed. At the very least our chamber director should dress accordingly. Today I saw her in the chamber office in jeans and a ball cap. I had a "newcomer" tell me she was rude when they went in for information. They also said she was very unknowledgeable. Just look at her and her apperance. Is that who you want to represent our town? I have never spoke to her personally but I have heard she uses a lot of foul language. At least be presentable.

Chamber Executive Director, Lois, has been arrested. Something about DUI or DWI and assault. Is this the face the Marshfield business community wants to represent them? Does anyone have info? It's public record.

With this lasted event taking place, finally maybe the board of the Marshfield Chamber of Commerce will wake up and end the employment of Ms. Farnsworth. She does not represent our area businesses in a positive light. I am a firm believer that the truth will always come to light.

Please remove her from our chamber.

I was a volunteer at the chamber of commerce when our longest lasting chamber secretary was rudely let go because she was sick.
I and several other vlunteers there at that time were very unhappy about Lois being hired at that time and we left our positions. I had been present everal times when Lois and another person had come into the office and yelled and cursed at Pam, she was our secretary at that time. Pam was well known and liked by most people. She could also her work done on time. She was accused of keeping a messy office, but you can't keep a neat office if you have no room to put anything.

Lois has been reported as having said that she didn't know how Pam got every thing done that she got done. Pam also dressed corectly
for her job too.

I am not afraid to put my name on this as Lois doesn' like me any way. I am an upstanding community member and Christian.

Thank you for the opportunity to have my say.
