The Chamber Connection: Independence Festival June 26th and 27th!

E-mail Print PDF
Friday night, June 26th, bring your lawn chairs down to Main Street for a free concert featuring The Cruz Brothers.  Edgar and Mark Anthony Cruz will be performing together in a rare performance. If you would like to hear a sample of their music, you may visit edgarcruz.com or markanthonycruz.com. Music will begin at 7:30 pm, so gather up your friends and family, take a stroll down our beautiful new Main Street and enjoy the LIVE music!

Just leave your lawn chairs in the car, because you don’t want to miss the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra Concert and Fireworks celebration on the square, Saturday, June 27 at 7:45 pm. We are so fortunate to have this incredible event on our Downtown Square. So, once again, call your family and friends, grab your lawn chairs and make your way to the square for a spectacular evening of entertainment. The Concert, conducted by Dr. Douglas Bakenhus is sponsored by Alliance Bank and the Fireworks are sponsored by Sulphur Springs Vision Center. Next time you stop by their offices, please thank them for their contribution to this event!

The Boutique is filled with apparel for plus-sized women, handbags and accessories, so don’t miss out! Please help us welcome them to the Chamber of Commerce and to our community!


Do we have your Business Cards?

If you are a member of the Chamber of Commerce, please stop by our office and make sure that we have your business cards displayed. We have people come in the Chamber, daily, to look at the business cards in order to find a service or product. If you have had your business cards on display, please stop by anyway, just to make sure that we haven’t run out!


Have you recently made a change to your business?

I just wanted to remind all Chamber members that if you have remodeled, expanded, added new services or just made some changes to your business…give us a call and we will be happy to host a ribbon cutting to help you inform this community of your changes!
