WEEKLY WRAP UP for Friday, Jan. 24, 2020

A message from your Chamber
    There are not words enough to thank the organizers of the MLK March and Program. It was an amazing morning in Taylor, Texas. A stirring program and a crowded march demonstrated some of the best things about our community. Thank you. Thank you.
    The Chamber's next project is its Trades Day Career Fair on March 4. We are inviting school districts and private schools and, even home-school groups to send their 8th-12th graders to this high-energy, dynamic event. 
     We will need volunteers to help conduct mock interviews and we are hoping that local business owners and entrepreneurs will help with that. We will also need people to help guide groups of students. Please watch this space for more information on that as we get closer to the day!
