From the President
In a few short weeks your Four Star Accredited Chamber will host the Southern Denton County Business & Community Expo, better known as Discover Local. Mark your calendar for Thursday, November 3 at the Hilton Garden Inn and make plans to attend. Discover Local is a great opportunity to promote your business to more than 700 community members in the greater Lewisville area.

A huge draw each year is the Taste of Southern Denton County, which features at least ten chamber restaurants and specialty vendors. We have received confirmations from Jason's Deli, Pei Wei, and Yogurt Zone to name a few. We will also have tastings of wines and beers by local members as well.

If you want to promote your business and connect with the public, I encourage you to participate as a vendor. Registration information is available on the chamber website.

I also ask that you share the event with your colleagues, family, and friends. There is no cost for the public to attend and we will have activities for all ages. On behalf of the board of directors and staff, I look forward to seeing you at Discover Local.
