    Happy Monday! It is a very different Monday in this office compared to past years at this time. Normally we would be celebrating a successful  Western Days Festival. We are very disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s event that was scheduled for this past weekend. However, today  we are celebrating  the generous and outstanding support from our business community.  Three  weeks ago we created a new Chamber Champion Sponsorship  Program.  The goal was to create a program that would spotlight  companies and individuals  that are dedicated to the mission of the Chamber. These sponsors would  receive benefits above and beyond standard membership and give the Chamber the opportunity to replace Western Days income.  Thanks to the generosity of this community, the Chamber Champion sponsorship  program has  brought in over $22,000 !!  We will still be accepting sponsorships for a couple of more weeks but we  want to acknowledge our sponsors that have committed so far.

     

    Special thanks to our Chamber Champions!!

    Platinum sponsors: Rush Chevrolet, Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative, Prosperity Bank,  Firewild Catering, Evergreen Farms Christmas Trees, Frontier Bank

    Gold Sponsors: State Farm Insurance – Brad Carter,  Elgin Smiles Dental,  Dr. Randy Robertson, Jodi & Robert Duron, Solid Ground Storage

    Silver Sponsors: Winkler Real Estate, Aqua Water Supply, Yegua Creek Farms, Banccorp South Bank, McDonalds, Independence Title, Yerico Manufacturing, Inc.

    T-Shirts For Sale!

    We created a special Western Days t-shirt to help us remember the 2020 festival that did not happen. We included our Chamber Champions logos on the back of the shirt  that we had  received before we went to print last week.  Those T-shirts are now available for purchase for $15. We have the shirts at the Chamber office and at several other locations in the community.  If you would like to purchase a shirt you would be helping us replace Western Days income. Our hope would be to sell so many shirts that we have to print more and would include even more Chamber Champion logos on the back!

    If you would like to purchase a t-shirt or sign up as a Chamber Champion – contact the Chamber office.

    Have a great week!  Be safe and  wear your mask!

    Working together,

    To: Chamber Members and Business Community

    Thanks to everyone that has responded to the Chamber Champion Sponsorship Program. We will be going to print this week on our special t-shirt and in order to have your logo on the shirt we need to have your commitment this week. 

    More details are below:

    As a reminder, this sponsorship program was created to replace the Western Days income. The 51st Annual Western Days Festival scheduled for June 23-27 has been cancelled due to COVID19 concerns.   This event is the largest fundraiser for the Chamber and our budget has been directly impacted. Without the $30,000 this event normally raises, the Chamber could face challenges by having to  reduce staff and services to our members and community. As an effort  to replace Western Days income, we have created a new Chamber Champion Sponsorship  Program.  All Chamber Champion sponsors will receive recognition and allows us the opportunity  to spotlight companies that are dedicated to the mission of the Chamber. These sponsors will receive benefits above and beyond standard membership. For more details about the program and ways you can assist us follow this link: https://www.elgintxchamber.com/elgin_chamber_champion_program.htm

    Western Days is a favorite summer tradition in this community and  we are disappointed that it will not be held this year.  But, to help us remember the 2020 event that didn’t happen, we have created a  special 2020 Western Days commemorative  t-shirt. All our Chamber Champion  Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors will have their logos on the back of this t-shirt. These shirts will be sold for $15 and will be available later this month.  

    As our community, continues to re-open businesses and works towards a  different “normal” -  let’s remember to be kind, extend grace and support our friends and neighbors. One Town One Team One family!

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.  

    Working together……
