CHAMBER MEMBER NEWS,
OFFERS & EVENTS
With all this growth, excitement and media attention lately, the new, local non-profit Navarro Farm
still has a long way to go to reach its goals. They are seeking donations to make their Greenhouse a reality, and at this point, things are dangerously close to them having to pause their programming for the winter as they may not have enough funding and resources in place to get their greenhouse built in time. They are seeking donations so they can make this happen sooner than later so their Farmers will continue to grow year round.
Navarro Farm provides transformative agriculture and animal adventures for children and young adults impacted with special needs, and their families.
The Foundation provides financial assistance to families in need who have children with developmental disabilities. All proceeds benefit the Foundation.
Do you provide a product or a service that can benefit teens or families with teens? Are you a parent of teen? If so, The Well is the place for you!
The Well is a free community project hosted by the youth development organization ForeverU that equips teens and families with knowledge, resources, and support for becoming their best selves at school, home, and in life. Find more details about this forum at www.joinforeveru.org/thewell.
Local Resource Booths • Live Speaker Panel • Essay Contest for High School Students • "Family-Night-Out" and "Friends-Night-Out" Grand Prize + Dinner On Us for the First 100 People!
Tuesday with Friends (In-Person) on Tue. Aug. 17 at 1pm. Join us to discuss The Guest List by Lucy Foley. Guests arrive at a remote island off the coast of Ireland to celebrate the perfect couple's perfect wedding. Everything has been planned, organized, and perfection is the goal. The handsome groom is a rising television star, the beautiful bride is a magazine publisher. As the night goes on things start to get sloppy. The bridesmaid “accidentally” spills on her dress and the Best Man makes an inappropriate toast. Someone ends up murdered.
