The 2018-2019 Leadership Fairfield class graduated in April at the 2019 Chamber Annual Awards Banquet. The Leadership Fairfield program includes eight monthly sessions each centered around a unique theme. Every session is different but includes expert presenters, panels of community leaders and behind-the-scene tours of Fairfield businesses. By the end of the program, each participant not only has a well-rounded view of the various business sectors in Fairfield but also will have personally connected and networked with Fairfield's top business and community leaders.
The theme for March was Passion, with a focus on agriculture. As an extension of that month's focus and discussion topics, Leadership Fairfield participants had the opportunity to attend one last Leadership Fairfield outing on Tuesday, May 7th; a day at the farms! Leadership Fairfield visited Elmore Family Farm and Radiance Dairy. Elmore Family Farm won the Agriculture Award at the 2019 Annual Awards Banquet.

Dave’s an easy going, friendly guy who says he likes the work because he’s always learning something new and he loves Fairfield because there’s always something different happening.

Celebrating Dairy Bar!
Emily Harryman knows better than most people that almost everyone loves ice cream! As the owner of one of Fairfield’s landmark businesses known as the Dairy Bar, she is on a first-name basis with many of the people you’ll see in the lines waiting for their turn to enjoy a cone, shake, or one of the many other tasty treats they serve through the little windows of the store that’s been there since 1950. First opening as a Dairy Queen, Emily’s grandparents, Roberta and Harold Mosinksi, and Emily’s aunt, Janet Whitten, bought the business in the early 90’s and changed the name to Dairy Bar, making it a truly local business. In 1996, Emily’s mom, Roberta Mosinski, purchased the business and as a youth, Emily worked in all aspects of the store before taking over the business in 2007 with an original goal to make it at least ten years. With the help of her husband Jeff, and her most regular staff, Joy Messer, Emily’s business continues to thrive beyond that ten-year goal. Emily’s ice cream has been brightening the day for locals and visitors alike for three generations. With Emily’s young daughters Hazel and Eileen already spending time in the store, we may someday see 4th generation keeping the lights on for years to come.

Celebrating Paint-Line, Inc!
Started in 1995, Paint-Line provides metal finishing services in the form of powder-coat painting, dip-line painting, and heat treated porcelain finishes. Paint-Line is a division of the Schaus-Vorhies Companies (SVC) group of businesses and is led by John Brokken. John says that one of their secrets to success is treating staff like they’re family. Proof of this comes with the longevity of key staff. Frank Nelson is the Production Manager for the business and he’s been with SVC for twenty-five years. You don’t get that kind of length of service by treating people poorly. Adaptability and a can-do attitude keep this business alive; whether it’s running 10,000 parts through a spray booth that will end up helping light NASCAR tracks around the world, or helping re-surface your great grandmother’s one-of-a-kind patio set, these folks treat every customer with dignity and respect.

Celebrating Oakwood Nursery & Flowers!
Terri Diers and Terry Klein started Oakwood Nursery in its present location back in 1978. The seeds of this business were sown by Terri’s mother, Irma Hartman, who loved plants, flowers, and trees her whole life. She cultivated that love for growing things with Terri and forty-one years later this company continues to serve the area with a quiet unassuming style. Terry Klein tells us that when they started they didn’t even have a cash register. While staff were out working a job site, customers would come pick up merchandise and leave their money under a rock in one of the sheds. Small town living can’t be beat! Dennis Hammel started working for Oakwood thirty-one years ago and is another reason this business tends to keep their customers year in and year out. Rounding out their staff is Debbie Hahn who works part-time in the spring; their busy season.
