Anyone wanting a “good look” at Nacogdoches may get it from the 2009 Official Guide & Chamber Directory and City & County Street Map that are available at the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce, 2516 North Street.
To get the new material to Nacogdoches County Chamber members as quickly as possible, Donna Finley, chamber chairwoman, is challenging board members to personally deliver as many packets as possible during the chamber’s Operation Thank You event.
“Taking this approach to deliver the new directory and map with a hand shake and a smile fits right in with the chamber’s ‘In Business, For Business’ theme for the 2008-09 year,” Finley said.
Operation Thank You kicks off Tuesday, Jan. 13 with a light breakfast between 7:15 and 9:15 a.m. at the chamber. All members are invited to this come-and-go event to meet chamber leaders and staff, network with one another and receive a heartfelt thank you.
According to chamber President / CEO Bruce Partain, the newly-designed chamber Web site will “go live” Tuesday morning, also.
“The Web site - nacogdoches.org - shares the updated design of the hard-copy map and Newcomer Guide/Member Directory,” Partain said. “We are proud to point people to the site or supply them a map and guide. As an official provider of information about our community and its businesses, we take extra care in the quality of the data and images we distribute."
Joe Max Green / Insurance Concepts is the breakfast sponsor. The event is catered by Wolf Creek Kitchens and coffee will be provided by Hastings Hard Back Café. Floral decorations donated by Avenue Flower Shop & Greenhouse will brighten up and energize the morning event.
Chamber board members are organizing small teams to help with Operation Thank You deliveries. The teams that deliver the most packets will receive prizes from Blockbuster Video, Laine’s Hallmark Shop, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers and Starbucks. Winners will be announced at the New Member Showcase and Fourth Friday Luncheon on Jan. 23 at Hotel Fredonia.
