Linda Toohey in her remarks at her retirement party at the Hall of Springs June 19 said she loved going to work at Chamber of Commerce every day of her years there. That must have taken Joe Dalton her boss for thirty years back.
More than 300 attendees gave Linda a standing ovation in salute ti her service. Leadership Saratoga which Linda mentored from its beginning were there in strength to thank her..
Linda will continue her community work for Saratoga Hospital, Skidmore College, the Y and other community organizations. But it will not be the full-time effort the Chamber required.
Supposedly, Linda had cut back and only took responsibility for the Leadership Saratoga program in 2005. Bu you would find Linda in her office working everyday.
Linda Glazer had come to Saratoga in 1977 as Publisher of The Saratogian. She left publishing after her marriage to Michael Toohey and began service at Saratoga Chamber as Executive Vice President under Joe Dalton in 1980.
In 1985 she instituted the Leadership Saratoga program which she has led since.
