Kim Dubeau - President

Congratulations to Kim who is continuing in the role of Vice-President of the Chamber for 2016-2017. Kim and her husband Steve moved to Port Sydney in 1978 and raised their three children here and now get to enjoy the antics of their three grandchildren as well.  Kim and daughter, Nicole, and their shop dog, Brutis, have run DnDesigns Custom Embroidery from their home in Port Sydney for the past year after running the business in Huntsville for 6 years before that.
Kim has been involved in different volunteer organizations over the years, Stephenson Co-op Nursery School, V.K. Greer Parents Group, Muskoka Zone Ski Patrol, YWCA Muskoka and now Port Sydney/ Utterson & Area Chamber of Commerce where she hopes to help as much as she can with whatever needs to be done.
