Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week

Congratulations to the Business of the Week

Alliance Bank Financial Services
100 Jefferson
Sulphur Springs, TX 75482

Thought for the Week:

“Investing with an eye to the long term is particularly important with stocks. Historically, equities have typically outperformed bonds, cash, and inflation, though past performance is no guarantee of future results and those returns has also involved higher volatility." — Susan Lennon, Financial Advisor

That's all for now — have a GREAT week!
