DECEMBER CHAMBER LUNCHEON RECAP
James Brown with Cardinal Financial and Holly McClung with Premier Legacy Real Estate both received their plaques for their new membership with the chamber at our December 12th luncheon at Occasions at Stone River. Welcome!

We also paid tribute to the Men and Women who serve as our First Responders in Royse City. Lt. Eavenson presented Officer John Bivens the “Police Officer of the Year” award and Fire Chief Ricky Bell presented the “Firefighter of the Year” award to Russell Thomas. We are proud to have both of these gentlemen serving our community along with all of the service men and women who put their lives on the line everyday for us.

Also a special thank you to Andrea Collins of Coldwell Banker Real Estate for providing the yummy cupcake treats!!
