Our Unsung Hero
One of the Sew Sisters of Buffalo Gap nominated their leader, Jessie Munson, to earn the Chamber's first Unsung Hero Award, which was presented to her at a special dinner last week. They credit Jessie with the passion and determination to make a difference when it was needed most.

Two years ago, in the heart of Covid,
Jessie brought six women together
to sew quilts for injured first responders. The group is now 15-strong today, and one of only three organizations nationwide to craft and donate 600 quilts to those who protect us.
The Buffalo Gap Sew Sisters meet twice a month at the Buffalo Gap Church of Christ to carry out their mission of love and compassion.

Bob Phillips said, "True heroes are everyday, ordinary people -- not athletes, politicians, heads of companies, or movie stars. Heroes make our history and our culture. They are real honest Americans and Texans." Sounds like Jessie to us!

Texas Country Reporter Loves Buffalo Gap
Bob Phillips spoke to a sold-out crowd last week in Buffalo Gap, praising the uniqueness and special qualities of our small community. He noted that with four billion people now in our country, Buffalo Gap is bound to continue growing, and urged us to preserve our identity while embracing the progress that growth is sure to bring. Look for event photos on our Facebook page soon!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the members and friends of the Buffalo Gap Chamber!
