Smith previously worked for the chamber for more than a decade. When she left in 2014, she was the organization's special projects coordinator - working on the Christmas Parade, Summerfest 5K, golf outings, business breakfasts, awards banquets and other activities.
Smith is a life-long resident of Saline.
Osterling recently returned to the executive director's post. He'd retired from the post in 2012 after 12 years on the job. With the chamber short-staffed and heading into parade season, Osterling reached out to Smith for assistance.
Upcoming Saline Area Chamber of Commerce activities include:
Saline Christmas Tree Lighting, at the four corners, 6-8 p.m., Dec. 3.
