Chamber Connection – April 19, 2023

Get your stomach ready for Rotary Club’s 8th Annual Claws for a Cause, which will be downtown on Saturday, April 29, from 5-10 p.m.

The crawfish-and-fixins dinner raises money for local charities and scholarships, plus it’s a lot of fun and good eating. Dubb and the Luv Machines will be in concert as well.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at or by scanning the code on the posters around town.

Business After Hours

Join us for a Business After Hours – at your business!

If you are a Chamber of Commerce member and want to host a Business After Hours (or Before Hours), we have some openings for you!

We are scheduling our monthly networking events for the remainder of the year, and are looking for host businesses. The cost of the event is free; we just ask that you provide some refreshments.

You simply open your business from 4:30-6 p.m. on the designated day (or 7:30-8:30 a.m.), and welcome the guests.

If you’re interested, send me an email at [email protected] or call 903-885-6515.
