Despite fears of threatening weather, two chambers, an auto dealer, and an advertising agency took a chance and moved forward with a March Business After Hours crawfish boil.
The event was a collaborative effort between the Temple Chamber of Commerce and the Belton Area Chamber of Commerce and was co-hosted and sponsored by Don Ringler Automotive and Lamar Advertising Company.
The wind was so forceful that tablecloths were secured with yards of tape. However, the breeze was a welcome addition on the unseasonably warm day, which drew a crowd of more than 150 guests.
Unlike other Business After Hours, this outdoor kickoff to crawfish season featured live Zydeco music courtesy of Bourland Landscape Supplies & Outdoor Power Equipment and POOL-ology, plenty of crawdads, and overflowing tailgates. But like all Chamber Business After Hours, the opportunity to meet and connect with other members of the local business community served as the driving force for the event.
Business After Hours is designed for members and prospective members to discover what’s happening with the Chamber, establish business relationships, and hear directly from sponsors. If you missed this one, we captured the spirit, fun, and fellowship in photos for you to enjoy!
