If you didn’t realize so before, the Karnes City area is a very friendly place. Many of our citizens just welcomed the newest branch office of Merrill Lynch to Karnes City at their new location on 106 N Esplanade Street. Bud Martin and Brett Daniels, employees of the firm, welcomed the 2nd Friday Breakfast Group Friday morning, the 8th of July, to their office for a great breakfast and get-together. One of the most interesting gatherings that happens once a month on that second Friday is this one that you should attend if you want to know what is happening or is about to happen in our County. Representatives from various Boards of Directors, the Karnes County Economic Development Agency, local business firms, government and other agencies usually attend these meetings. And, they are open to all who wish to come. The breakfast is sponsored in part by the area Chambers of Commerce, Agri-Life Service, and many of the other community businesses and agencies listed above.
The Merrill Lynch Office will be open part-time for now on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and can be reached by phone at 830-780-3446 or at the San Antonio office of Brett Daniels, 210-805-2877 to set up appointments. Many who were at the breakfast had previously met Brett and Bud and know that they are here not only to help their clients but to be active participants in our community. And we at the Karnes City Community Chamber of Commerce will help area businesses in any way we can. There will still be a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony for Merrill Lynch and as soon as we set the date, all are welcome to that event also.
Come see us at the Chamber and find out how many new businesses are on the horizon for our booming community. We will help all new neighbors as we welcome them to our city.
‘Til next time.
