VFW to hold ribbon cutting to celebrate anniversary


I’m excited to let you know that we have begun work on the 2021 Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Directory. We distribute over 7,000 of these directories to visitors, relocation hopefuls, and even hometown heroes who are interested in learning more about our local businesses. They include historical information as well as all things to see and do in Hopkins County.

The best part is, they include an alphabetical and categorical listing of your business. LeeAnn Peugh, with Echo Publishing, will be contacting you in the next few weeks to see if you are interested in placing an ad in the directory.

The rates are affordable and one of the best ways to represent your business. I hope you will consider this a wise investment with over 7,000 opportunities for business exposure. You may also contact the Chamber, and I will pass your information along to her. I’m proud to produce this book telling all about the place we love. I hope you will join me on the journey!

Also, just a quick reminder that the Chamber will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day. We will reopen Thursday, Nov. 12 at 9 a.m.

Goodwill of Sulphur Springs is spending the month of November thinking of those in need. They are asking for non-perishable food items to help stock up our local food pantries. PLEASE drop the items off at the Goodwill Retail Store, and they will deliver to our local Food Pantries. This drive will take place the whole month of November.

Our local VFW Post 8560 is hosting an anniversary ribbon cutting celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at noon. Please make plans to attend and see the changes they have made!

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs held a Blessing and Ribbon Cutting Celebration for the Ruth and Jack Gillis Women’s Center on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 5 p.m., thanks to the financial support of the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation and local supporters.
