Revisiting One Direction | A month ago, Columbia news, views & reviews posted this article about Ephrata’s search for a Executive Director, Ephrata Economic Development Organization. A week or so later, we posted this: Tough fighting the GOBAGs | Lebanon’s Business Improvement District leader has resigned. You may recall that Kelly Withum, the person who has been credited with Lititz’s resurgence, went to Lebanon just over a year ago to take a similar challenge in Lebanon. She played a huge part in the resurgence in Lititz; hit a wall of resistance in Lebanon and has been welcomed to Ephrata.

Kelly Withum, who served as Venture Lititz’s executive director for nearly 10 years, has been hired as the new downtown executive director for Ephrata’s Economic Development Organization (EDO), a newly-created not-for-profit organization.” – The Ephrata Review

And now, Withum will bring her prowess to Ephrata because she’s the new Executive Director of the Ephrata Economic Development organization. Just sayin’.
