Kick off a new year with two ribbon cuttings

A new year and a new time to start off fresh! 2010 here we come!

Let’s start this year off with a ribbon cutting for new member Trade Resources, manager Bobby Janes, at 10 a.m. Friday.

Their office is located at 102 E. Cameron Ave. and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trade Resources will do staffing for companies, help business with benefit packages and filing forms for their businesses.

Call them at 446-3378 for more information of how they can help your business or help get that perfect employee.

They will do background checks and screening on prospective employees to help with your hiring needs.

Insurance business

Then on Tuesday, January 12 at 10 a.m. we are having a grand opening and ribbon cutting for Don Hughes Insurance Agency—Nationwide Insurance.

They are moving to a new location across from the post office in the office next to Jim Currey Realty. Come out and visit their new location on Ackerman Street.

Chamber directors

Our new Chamber directors are Wallace Jones, Michelle Morgan, Hunter Matula and returning director Joyce Ford.

They will bring a lot of enthusiasm to the board and we appreciate their willingness to serve. We will introduce them at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 12-noon at the Patterson Center.

This is open to all Chamber members and perspective members. Becky Marek will prepare the meal.

Tejas Festival

Plans are underway for the 4th Annual Tejas Art and Book Festival. This one will be the best one yet and if you’d like to help, please let us know.

We will again have the authors, artists, re-enactments, and so much more. We have quality entertainment in the Rockdale area that always perform well.

If your group would like to be a part of the entertainment please call the Chamber. We also need food vendors so if your group would like to have a food booth call us for that too.

There is so much going on and we want you to be a part of that.

Until next time I leave you with this: How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
