Can you believe it’s already school time again? We always see increased activity around town during the school year, and we want to welcome all of our students, teachers, administrators and staff members!
We’re a little more than a month away from our semi-annual City/Community Wide Garage Sale on Saturday, October 6, so now is the time to start getting ready! To have your sale listed, please call our manager, Amanda Hernandez, at (940) 864-2477. She’s in the office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Entry fee is just $10.
Our board also set the date for our next “Sip, Shop and Stroll” during the holiday season. This year’s event will be Thursday, December 6, and we encourage everyone to participate, whether you’re a seller or a shopper! That will be a very busy week for us as the annual Christmas Parade will be that Saturday, December 8. We’ll have more information on those as we get closer to the date.
Finally, we want to encourage you to let us know how we can be of even greater benefit to you and your business. We realize that membership is an investment, and we want to maximize the opportunity for you to realize a return on that investment even beyond simple community support. We are proud to be a voice for business in Haskell, and we need your continued involvement to be the best Chamber we can be!
As always, we thank you for your support of the Haskell Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
