Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week

Congratulations to the Business of the Week:

Water Oak School

626 N. Davis

Sulphur Springs, TX 75482


Tip of the Week from Mary Ann Rowson, “We believe in the motto ‘Start them young, teach them right.’ Our attitude coincides with the King James Version of Proverbs 22:6, which states, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

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