Robert Gloor has been appointed as the interim executive director of the Fredonia Chamber of Commerce.
Gloor, a lifelong village resident, owned and operated the Foster Nursery from 1963-88. The nursery specialized in grapevines. He is the author of "A Guide to American and French Hybrid Grape Varieties," described as a standard reference work in the field of viticulture.
Gloor has been active in village government, the Fredonia Central Board of Education, and various civic, arts and charitable organizations.
Said Gloor: "I am excited about this opportunity to serve our community . . . and invite both Chamber members and non-members to contact me with their ideas for making a very fine organization even better."
