A Letter from our 2018-2019 Board Chair
Erin Kincaid

As I approached my tenure as Chairman of the Board, I found myself growing very apprehensive. With all the growth in Royse City and all of the expectations that our community has of the Chamber of Commerce, would I be able to live up to the task? After our Board of Directors annual work session, and because of the amazing individuals that are serving as your Board this year, I know with full confidence that I am. I know you will reap the benefits of this group's dedication, character and expertise. 
We have aptly chosen a theme this year called "Business First." Everything we do will be analyzed, processed and put through the lens of "is this best for our businesses and business growth in Royse City?" We want nothing more than for you and your business to succeed. We know that clients and customers are crucial, and we want to help you find and keep more. We want you to have access to tools that will help you lead your teams in the most healthy and productive ways. In addition, our Ambassadors are ready to jump into the ring and bring you even more resources and outreach as well. We are very excited about their plans, growth and their desire to help your business grow through your Chamber Membership. 
We are excited to launch into our Chamber U classes this fall. There you will find access to all sorts of skills and marketing classes. You'll be able to meet and network with other community members and business at countless events throughout the year. For those who want that extra boost of involvement and marketing, you'll want to jump on board with FunFest and Casino Night for sure! We reach over 10,000 people with FunFest alone! 
The 2018-19 year holds many wonderful things in store for those who want to maximize their Chamber membership. Growing your business is what we are all about and we cannot wait to serve alongside you as you succeed in reaching your goals. We are committed to exceeding your expectations and look forward to our year of where your business is first!

Chairman's Call to ACTION!
There is no better way to give back and reach out to new people in our community that to get involved with FunFest and Casino Night! We have two of the best and most well-attended events in our region as our major outreach events. There are many ways to be a part of these events as well: Sponsorship, Volunteering, Vendor Involvement and Marketing. If you would like to Volunteer on the FunFest or Casino Night Committees, please let us know ASAP! Roles are being set now and we would love to work alongside you and your team!
Our Featured Non-Profit:
Paw Packs by Luna Burke and Assoc.
The Paw Pack, food program is a part of Luna Burke and Associates. a Non-profit that started in 2018 by Brandi Luna and Ashlee Burke. Their mission is to provide a weekends worth of food, to children in the RCISD who might go without over the weekend while not in school. “We provide 2 breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 snacks, a fruit cup and a juice, every weekend during the school year”! Backpack food programs are commonly run by volunteers and sustained by donations of community members and private foundations.
The Paw pack requires the cooperation and support of the entire community, including school officials, community organizations, faith-based organizations, parents, and children. “Thank you for helping us get this off the ground”- Paw Pack Founders. They have had an outpouring of community support in which their goal to feed at least 50 kids was met within just mere weeks of launching their program! However, they won’t stop there! They have partnered with several business that believe in their mission and are contributing in their own creative way. Swing by Sweet Face to get some paw shaped black and gold cookies every Friday and a portion of the proceeds will be given back to the program.  Alumni Sports Bar and Grill is also offering their own special to help out. If you feel so inclined to donate to the children of RCISD anytime throughout the year these stores will continuously be accepting food: Fitness Foundation, LaRue, SweetFace Sugar Shoppe, Alumni Sports Bar and Grill, Rest Haven-Royse City, On Pointe Properties, and Southern Grace Boutique.  A couple items they are in need of are: Vienna Sausage and Chef Boyardee cups along with other non-perishable items and easy to open and make as some of these children are very young. Check them out on Facebook or look for the cute paw print #ibackthepack window decal in your local stores.
