Cheryl Porter

I moved to the Virden area in 1989 with my husband and two boys and we have lived in Virden, Reston and now the RM of Woodworth municipality since then. I had been self employed in Virden from 1995 to 2007 and now I am a Constituency Administrator for Larry Maguire MLA for Arthur-Virden. It is important for the town to have a strong voice that is why I got involved with the Virden and area Chamber of Commerce.
