Annual Chamber Banquet – Sky Ranch Oak Haven Dining Hall

New this year – you will be able to use your Credit/Debit card to pay for your Silent Auction purchases.

If you have not been to Sky Ranch or is you are wondering which entrance to take:
GPS directions: 24657 CR 448 & enter the North entrance and follow the road across the dam.  There will be someone to give directions after you get across the dam area to let you know which road to take to the parking lot. There is a covered portico at the dining hall, then you can park once you have let them out.

There will also be golf carts that will help give you a ride from the parking lot to the dining hall.  They are doing this free of charge, so tips to the drivers would probably be nice if you wish to do so.

Texas Rose Horse Park (TRHP)

needs Volunteers!

March 27 – 30, TRHP is hosting the Spring Horse Trials.  This is a ‘triathlon’ of events where horses perform in three different types of competition; dressage, stadium jumping and cross-country jumping. With so many contestants and events taking place at the same time, volunteers are needed.
Volunteers do not need any experience with horses or with horse shows. Explanation and training are provided as needed. Positions are varied and suited to all ages (15 to 90) abilities and interests. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a friend or a family member to join them. Each volunteer receives lunch, snacks, water, t-shirts and all the support we can give.
Please call Shelley Principe, TRHP Volunteer Coordinator at 903-360-0270, if you would like more information.
