What to Wear on Our Cruise
Why Join the Chamber?
“I joined the Pauls Valley Chamber going on 6 years ago, and have done very little advertising. Many of my initial customers came from people using the Chamber’s website that lists the various area business. Most of them said they wanted to support local small business, and used the website and other Chamber events to discover who the local people were. To me, this Chamber represents the best that Pauls Valley and the surrounding area has to offer ... always positive, always progressive in helping develop business, and helping to make this area a great place to live.”
