Hello to our valued chamber and community members.
A warm thank you goes out to everyone who attended our Spanish Market Artists’ Reception on July 26th – what a great night!

Thank you, also, to all of the talented Spanish Colonial Artists who participated – we were honored to share your company and hope you had a very successful weekend at Spanish Market. Plans are already in the works for next years’ event!
I’d like to extend a warm invitation to you to join us for our August 23 Business After Hours, hosted by Esperanza Shelter.
