E-mail Print PDF

It’s hard to believe, but on this day one year ago the Chamber of Commerce was open for business in its new location at 300 Connally St. in downtown Sulphur Springs! We love being downtown and we hope that you have had a chance to stop by to visit our office. If you haven’t popped in yet, please make a point to do so, and pick up a map or a phone book while you’re here! In case you don’t know, our office is on the southwest corner of Connally and Davis streets.

Chamber Member Directory will go to print in mid-December ... will you be included?

Attention, all Chamber of Commerce members: Please visit our website www.sulphursprings-tx.com and go to member directory to see that all of your information is correct. The 2010 Buyer’s Guides will be printed in mid-December, and we want to make sure that all of your information is correct. If you have changed anything about your business — i.e. phone numbers, addresses, contact information, etc. — please let us know as soon as possible so it will be printed correctly. If you don’t have access to the Internet, stop by our office or give us a call and we will check it for you!

If you are not a member of the Chamber of Commerce but have been considering joining, please do so NOW so that you, too, will be able to take advantage of being listed in the Buyer’s Guide that is distributed to over 4,000 people per year! For more information, call 903-885-6515.
