Your Karnes City Community Chamber of Commerce has been busy welcoming the 2013 New Year, looking forward to more activities, members, and visitors. And, so far all are happening as expected. One of the most recent activities we are focusing on is our upcoming Annual Banquet to be held on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at the Panna Maria Diner. And the annual banquet this year will be a little different and we expect it to be a lot more fun! One reason for that is that the popular band “Cool Freddie E and The Crew” will be there, playing and encouraging all to dance. This group is out of Houston but Freddie has roots here in Karnes County. More information and details will be given soon. Mark your calendars now and make plans to attend! We want to make this our best banquet ever!
In addition to our entertainment this year, we still will honor our Business of the Year, Organization of the Year, and our Citizen of the Year. And, please be encouraged to write or e-mail us here at the Chamber with your recommendations on who should get these awards. We will need your nominations by the middle of February. You can also stop by the office and leave a written recommendation for those you think should receive the awards for 2013.
We will also hold an auction this year at the banquet. We would love for our members to contribute items to that auction, if you are able to do so.
We want to thank all of our members for being with us in our efforts to make our Karnes City Community the best that it can be. And we are thankful for the blessings we have received because of the Eagle-Ford Shale economic boom. So, let us celebrate all of this together on March 2nd, 2013.
‘Til next time, Cathy Passmore.
