Deadline for Buyer’s Guide is TOMORROW!!!

We are going to print with the buyer’s guides soon and we REALLY want to have accurate information for every chamber member. If you have not checked our website or called to see if we have the right information, please do so ASAP, so that we may get it all correct!

If you are not a member of the Chamber of Commerce and have always wondered what we do and why you should be a member, well, let me tell you! At the Chamber of Commerce, we exist to promote the businesses that belong to the Chamber of Commerce. If someone is looking for a specific type of business, we only recommend businesses that belong to the Chamber. We also promote your businesses on the internet with our website, www.sulphursprings-tx.com. Each week we draw a Chamber member’s nam,e and they will be named business of the week. We put their name, address, phone number and website in this news article and we discuss it on the Chamber Report on KSST Radio. It is also the goal of the Chamber to be an advocate for our businesses. It is our hope that we will see issues that need to be addressed in the business community and we try to find solutions. There are so many benefits to belonging to the Chamber, and I will be happy to discuss them with you! Just give me a call at 903-885-6515!

Questions Asked at the Chamber – Really!

Just last week, a gentleman, from up north, came in the office. He said, “Ma’am, I need your help. I am in town looking for a ‘nut all’ tree and I was told there are some in Sulphur Springs — will you please help me find one?”

That’s all for now…have a GREAT week!
