*Due to the amount of slash at the Transfer Station, we will NOT be accepting slash after September 30th, 2022. We will resume accepting slash starting April 1st, 2023. This will allow us the opportunity to manage the slash we currently have on site.*

Jae Lesley named Chairman of the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

In the absence of Immediate Past Chairman Santos Martinez, the gavel was passed from former Chair, Cindy Ward to Jae Lesley, Chairman for the ‘22/’23 term.

Jae and his wife Kaci and son Gabe moved to Angel Fire 5 years ago with the desire to plant a church. The result of that mission is the dynamic Village Church of Angel Fire where he is Pastor. Jae also owns and operates J. Lesley Music and volunteers at Angel Fire Fire Department as a chaplain.

We are excited to have Jae at the helm of the Chamber and look forward to his term as Chairman of the Board.
