Giveaways show warm hearts of townspeople

We have been so busy with the fan giveaway. Thanks to so many people we have given away 134 fans to the low income and elderly.

Now we are working on school supply giveaway. I can't tell you how many people have brought money or items for the two drives we are conducting. It is heartwarming to see the responses we get of people wanting to help others.

Garage sale

We are busily signing up people for our Community Wide Garage Sale and we expect it to be a big event again this year. Call the Chamber at 446-2030 if you would like to sign your sale up. There will be sales all over town sporting our orange signs.

That day will also be Market Day. Make your plans to get out and get shopping on Saturday, Sept. 5.

Hotel grand opening

This Thursday, Aug. 13 the Comfort Inn will hold its Grand Opening and Chamber Mixer at their location on Highway 79 across from Walmart. They have done some renovations and are open for business.

Come out on Thursday from 4-7 p.m. at Comfort Inn for good food and tours of the new facility. Owners Suresh and Nayna Patel look forward to meeting you as they proudly display their new business.

Blood drive

There will be a blood drive sponsored by the Chamber and the Ministerial Alliance to be held at Meadowbrook Baptist Church from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25. Come out and donate blood.
