A Note from Michael
Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season and were able to enjoy at least a little time off with friends or family.
Lots of great things happening at the Chamber an in Rowlett so be sure to read the entire newsletter but I want to point out just a couple.  
Saturday, January 27th at 7pm we are having the 39th Annual Community Awards Banquet. Lots of individuals and businesses will be recognized including First Responders (Police, Fire and Public Works) and Teachers as well as Business of the Year, the Biff Bettencourt Outstanding Service Award and of course, the Big "R" Pacesetter Award! Voting will go out soon to the primary rep from each Chamber member so be sure to look for that.
I also want to briefly mention an exciting membership event coming in March. Lots more details will be forthcoming but I know you will be excited so stay tuned!
