February 2015


The Banquet was a great event. Many thanks to ALL who worked so hard to produce the 2015 Edition. Thanks to HISD for the facility use. Billy Riggs gave a great presentation and provided everyone with thought provoking laughter. Congratulations to Steve Hodges as Citizen of the Year and to Terry Caviness as the newest inductee into the Chamber Hall of Fame. A special thanks to all of our sponsors. Without them, we could not have such a quality banquet each year.

We will be starting on the Tierra Blanca Classic golf tournament very soon. It will be on June 26th, 27th, & 28th this year. Sign up date for the waiting list will be St. Patricks Day (March 17th). Even though sign up is for the waiting list, you really want to be here at the Chamber on the morning of the 17th of March to get placed. We generally always get several teams from the list into the tournament. SO....be there and sign up.
