Chamber Connection – March 21

March 21, 2023- We still have a couple of morning tee times for the 34th Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, set for April 7 at the Sulphur Springs Country Club, but only a couple.

Like last year, the registration fee for a six-person scramble team is $750, with the morning tee time at 8 a.m. The afternoon slots are already full. Registration includes 12 mulligans, six meal tickets, and three carts.

Check out our registration form online at or drop by the office at 110 Main St. to get in on the action.

We are also accepting goody bag items for the golfers. We need those by noon on Friday, March 31. And we are taking raffle items, so if your business wants to promote itself, goody bag items and raffle prizes are a great way to do it.
