The Annual Radio Auction hosted by the Kenedy Chamber of Commerce and KAML Radio was held on Thursday, Dec. 13 and what a fun event! Chamber volunteers, members, board members and even tourists just listening to the radio while driving thru the area were all busy running around in our office taking bids back and forth to the volunteer radio announcers, working the phones and buying items. Thanks to all the wonderful business sponsors who participated and donated items to the auction. Our desire is to be a catalyst to keep business in our area and get people shopping in Kenedy and Karnes County! We hope all the listeners of the show as well as the winners of the items donated will visit your stores for the Christmas Holiday and that the auction benefitted your local business. Buying locally is so important to the Kenedy economy, and there are so many new businesses coming to Kenedy and Karnes County.
Winning bidders need to come to the Kenedy Chamber office at 216 W. Main Street aka Little Red School House to pay for their items and either pick up the item or a certificate to take to the store that made the donation.
Don’t forget to come by or call the chamber at 583-3223 to get your home signed up to be judged for the Annual Kenedy Christmas Decoration Contest. Judging will be promptly at dark on Dec. 20 so please have your lights on at dusk. Winners will be notified that evening! Once judged we will return to the winners homes to take pictures, deliver your award and provide a sign for your yard designating your home as 1st, 2nd or 3rd place winner.
If you are planning on traveling for the Christmas Holiday, please be safe. Until we meet, please have a very happy, blessed, Merry Christmas! Brenda Hansler – Kenedy Chamber.
