As the fiscal year comes to a close for the Chamber, I want to thank our Chamber Executive Board, Board of Directors, Chamber staff and our community. It has been my honor and privilege to serve as chairman of the Chamber this last year and I feel truly blessed to live and work in our community.
I started my first message in the Chamber newsletter with the following acronym based on our theme from last year’s banquet - “Time to Shine”:
T – Say Thank you often.
I – Inspire others.
M – Make Meaningful memories.
E – Be Eager in all that you do.
I think it’s important to revisit these positive words as we complete the fiscal year, celebrate our 95th Chamber Banquet, and as new officers and board members begin their terms.
Also, as we look back at recent banquet themes such as “There’s no place like home,” “Time to shine,” and this year’s theme, “Rooted in our heritage,” we are reminded of what a great place Weatherford and Parker County are. This is our home and we are proud of it. As our community continues to grow, we face challenges together and try to make improvements along the way all while remembering the wonderful history and heritage of our community.
Thank you again for this opportunity and for your service and dedication to the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce.
