The Muleshoe Chamber of Commerce welcomes two new members, Sarah Santos of Lasting Impressions, a flower and gift shop, and Jesus Tovar of Bailey County Electric, according to Jill Sisk.
“I highly encourage anyone who is thinking about becoming a Chamber of Commerce member to do so. There are so many benefits in socializing, meeting new people and just getting your name out,” Sisk said. “It’s great to let the town know you’re here.”
Sisk said the Chamber helps members with advertising by getting them out on social media, through Channel 6 news and through newspapers.
“It’s just good networking for the town and the community,” she said.
Manager for the Chamber since September, Sisk brings experience in events planning and marketing to the position. Sisk, who is originally from Sterling City, succeeds Kaci Morris.
One of the first items on the agenda for 2019 is the election of new board members. Kasey Coker and Kris Phillips are going off the board, and positions up for election are president, vice president and secretary.
Sisk said Muleshoe can expect to enjoy the same events they’ve had in the past. The Chamber Breakfast is scheduled for Jan. 22, the Chamber Banquet will take place in May and the Fourth of July Parade on Independence Day.
“I’m excited and nervous about that one,” Sisk said.
The annual Christmas Tree Lighting will again take place during Shop Small Week in December.
“We’re planning to incorporate new events into the annual celebrations,” Sisk said.
